British Society for the History of Mathematics

The British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM) asked us to simplify their website’s information architecture and create a new brand for the Society.

We developed a new logo and colour palette, built a content management system and overhauled their news section. To meet the project goals within a limited budget, we were able to use the project as training for our apprentice and donate some of our time.

The final logo and branding is inspired by the proof of Pythagoras's theorem by Euclid.

Avigail, Maria, Richard, Stephen - I'm sure the others will join me in saying we'd like to thank you for all your hard work on the site. It does or will do all the big things we wanted plus some more, and it looks beautiful too. Everyone I've shown the production site off to so far has been seriously impressed, and I can't wait for it to go live. The production process has been great fun and really rewarding, and I've enjoyed working with you. Thank you also, Avigail especially, for putting up with my constant bug reports, change requests, questions, and general confusion! ... It's been so long now that I can't quite believe that this has suddenly happened, and so smoothly and efficiently too. My chat with Ken at that meeting was prompted by a friend who affectionately/frustratedly dubbed us 'British Society for the History of Markup'. I am very, very glad that we can finally lose that name :-)

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Agile. The iterative procedures employed during the design process could not be better. The log design is brilliant, and so on.
