Our appreciation for discovery allows for the creation of solutions that centre around impeccable user experiences.

The Principia Mission campaign website provides a platform for the UK Space Agency to showcase leading British astronaut, Tim Peake’s Principia Mission and other cutting-edge space activities co-ordinated from the UK. With the space industry providing the technology and infrastructure for services such as weather forecasting, navigation, global communications and broadcasting, space technology has become an essential part of everyday life and can provide the tools to manage complex global challenges. The website plays a pivotal role in communicating these processes to the public.
Connect delivered an innovative and unique platform to the UK Space Agency in a short time period with tight deadlines in place. Powered by WordPress, the UK Space Agency continue to amend aspects of the site and add content as they see fit.
Connect’s joint Managing Director, Carole Boardman said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for two awards at the Public Sector Communications Awards. 2016 continues to be a very exciting time for Connect, and also for the UK Space Agency. We are pleased that both our technical and functional excellence, and that of the Principia Mission campaign website has been recognised and the team are looking forward to the ceremony in July.”
The Public Sector Communications Awards celebrate and reward excellent communication strategies and campaigns, teams and individuals in local and national government, emergency services and not-for-profit bodies from across the UK.
This year’s conference and ceremony will take place on Thursday 14th of July at The Emirates Stadium in London.
