British Paralympic Association

Skylab is hiring!


With several successful projects under our belt, we're making a name for ourselves in sports sector digital marketing. So much so that earlier this year, the British Paralympic Association (BPA) approached us directly when it was looking to redesign its website.

The BPA got in touch with us on the back of our previous work with major sporting organisations such as British Swimming, Round The World Yacht Race and Manchester United. Our brief was to develop a site that would represent the organisation's brand and values, while stirring up support for London 2012.

We're extremely proud of the end result. Now live at http://www.paralympics.org.uk, Skylab's redesign features striking athlete imagery, passionate quotes and bold British colours, conveying talent, pride and determination ahead of September's Paralympic Games.

Visitors can learn all about the diverse world of Paralympic sports' from archery to wheelchair rugby. The site is packed with athlete profiles, event information and image galleries, plus background to the Paralympic Games, ParalympicsGB and the BPA.

Jane Jones, Marketing and Communications Director, BPA comments, "Skylab has designed a site that showcases the best of British talent in the build up to this summer's Paralympic Games, and whether visitors are looking to get involved or simply learn more, we hope they will enjoy using the site."

Nigel Collier, Managing Director, Skylab said, "The British Paralympic Association is a prestigious partner to work with and we are extremely pleased and grateful that we were approached directly to do the design work for this site, based on our award winning sports heritage."

Our natural strength in digital marketing for the sports sector continues to grow. Most recently, we designed an auction site for Manchester City and scooped a contract for digital strategy with English Lacrosse. We also received a Big Chip Award in 2011 for the British Gas Swimfit web app.

The build of the BPA website was handled separately.

Find us on Twitter @studioskylab and tell us what you think of the design.
