Bringing science to life

Designing a fully-responsive, visually engaging website to boost user engagement with a broad range of learning resources.

Royal Microscopical Society  

Royal Microscopical Society have been at the forefront of microscopy since 1839 and is dedicated to furthering the science of microscopy.  It does that through a wide range of activities that support research and education in microscopy, and through enabling microscopists to make advances and developments in microscopy, cytometry and imaging.  

What they wanted

Royal Microscopical Society required a fully-responsive, visually engaging website that would boost user engagement with a broad range of learning resources.


We delivered

The end result was a visually engaging website full of interesting images and informative video that supports the Royal Society going forwards.

Users can search and book events, search a library of the society’s magazine ‘infocus’, browse content by science section and find documents via a searchable knowledge library.

Through the website, the society also provides an important educational programme for schools that consists of a microscopes and learning framework.
