Midlands Engine

Developing a website for the Midlands Engine for Growth

Project Overview

The Midlands Engine defines how the East and West Midlands will come together to better serve the region on a collective level. It is being backed by businesses, local authorities and 10 Local Enterprise Partnerships.

Studio Seventeen built a website for the Midlands that focused on their themes: Midlands Connect, Innovation, Skills, Finance for Business, and Promotion. It needed to contain an updatable News section, an event page, embedded videos and downloadable content.

We developed a lightweight, fully-responsive website that enables multiple users to contribute to content. It focuses on the government’s plan for making the Midlands a powerful engine for economic growth


The easy-to-navigate site is brought together with clean lines, clear typography and a vibrant colour scheme. We developed the colour palette to reflect each of the Midlands themes.

Studio Seventeen came on board when we needed to get a website up and running in short order. They delivered to a very tight deadline and at a reasonable price. What more could one ask for? How about a highly professional and responsive ongoing support service? They’ve delivered that too.

We regularly maintain and update the Midlands website to promote their Vision for Growth. This has included implementing a custom blog section and re-structuring the website architecture to enhace the user experience as the website grows.
