#ThisIsDerby Web Designers Wanted

By The Mainframe Team

#ThisIsDerby two girls boxingQUAD is seeking local web builders to upskill the #ThisIsDerby Web Team in web build and coding, and host the site www.thisisderby.org

#ThisIsDerby is an Opportunity Area project, committed to closing the social mobility gap. Leading the project’s Digital Hub, QUAD created a web team of young people (aged 11-18) who attended fortnightly workshops with professional facilitators to upskill the team in digital and graphic design and coding skills, and lead on the development of a new website. The team made decisions about who and what the website would be for, content, language and navigation. www.thisisderby.org is a website by young people, for young people.

In March 2020, the project was cut short due to lockdown. We now hope to re-start the project, picking up where we left off, and further enhancing the website as a vehicle for youth voice in the Derby. We are seeking interest from local web builders who would like to get involved in this fantastic project, and support young people to continue to develop the site and learn web build and coding skills. This role may also include hosting the site.
