RGU students design new website for Lord-Lieutenant

A group of computing students at Robert Gordon University (RGU) has helped to design a new website for the Lord-Lieutenant of Kincardineshire.

Brandon Torrie (20), Piotr Starzec (21), Adrian Grzywaczewski (25) and Yoan Montoya (20) worked together on the project, which is part of RGU’s Talent Exchange initiative, to design the website for current Lord-Lieutenant of Kincardineshire, Carol Kinghorn.

The Talent Exchange programme is a new initiative which provides opportunities for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to access the skills and knowledge of RGU students in ways that are tailored to the specific needs of an organisation.

The students, who used the university’s high tech digital incubation hub, built a cross-platform website under the direction and supervision of senior lecturer Liz Coulter-Smith

Brandon, who studies Digital Media, said: “We wanted to make a website that was far better than the others out there and I am very happy about the work my team has done for the Lord-Lieutenant. I feel I have now got a solid basis of how commercial projects are done and hope to achieve expertise in this field.”

Mrs Carol Kinghorn, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Kincardineshire, said: “We are tremendously pleased with the result of the website. It is very user friendly, it is easy to navigate and the fact that you can access it from various platforms is great.”
