We crafted ASCUS, an Edinburgh based science engagement and public laboratory platform, a WordPress website. The website makes great use of a dark theme to best present a significant level of written and visual content. As ASCUS runs several events per year the site supports an easy to use booking system for its users. Social channels are fully supported across the website pages and news pages, which increases visitor engagement. The WordPress interface is easy to use for all the ASCUS staff involved in its maintenance and content growth. We also manage the domains and hosting so the site is reliable and hassle free.
