Project Outline

Moving from one CMS to another can sound like a daunting task. Our work with WW Group proved that doesn’t have to be the case. After years of frustration and unnecessary time and money spent on support, updates and fixes they decided to walk away from Wordpress and move to ExpressionEngine. With our support, creativity and technical knowhow we steered the organisation towards a simpler, smoother, more cost-effective website management solution.


ExpressionEngine is reputed to be one of the world’s most flexible and secure open source content management systems, which is why we’ve been strong advocates for deploying it for over 10 years. Used by some of the world’s largest corporations ExpressionEngine doesn’t have any of the baggage that other content management systems are known for. Gone are the vulnerabilities others suffer with and you can forget the need to update every five minutes. Expression Engine enables us to design a site as we want, improve the user experience as we see fit and completely avoid the need to adhere to a pre-existing template and have to shoe-horn content and features to fit it.

The successful delivery of the new web presence for WW Group demonstrates how great design can be brought to life without compromising on functionality.

The team at Design Workshop were amazing to work with. From planning to build, and continuously throughout the aftercare process, they have been there to support, reassure and guide us. They made the transition from Wordpress to ExpressionEngine effortless, ensuring the platform performed to all our requirements and more. Since the rebuild, we have found ExpressionEngine extremely user friendly and customisable. Blog posts, updates and amendments have never been so easy!
