In Autumn 2015 UWE Bristol partnered with digital agency Gibe (that’s us!) and creative agency Activation to help them develop a new online identity.
We are constantly on the move. That means we want our websites to be responsive and available wherever we are. But we also want fast websites that don't use all our mobile data allowance at the same time...

For some time now, we have been using CSS preprocessors in our front end development at Gibe Digital. In the past we had used Less CSS, but we soon switched to Sass CSS.
