The weaver bird has finished building her nest – our website is live.
Weaver birds are such hard grafters. Their exquisite nests rival any human feat of engineering. Yet still it takes these tiny birds just two days to construct these elaborate structures. If you’ve been checking our website, you’ll have seen a weaver bird hard at work for a little longer than that, for it’s taken us a while to perfect our new site.
But the truth is, we’ve been busy working up phenomenal campaigns for new clients, while enabling some of our existing clients to break all-time fundraising records. We’ve scooped up awards, like Campaign of the Year for Crisis. And we’ve moved to gorgeous new offices. We now look over Oxford’s dreaming spires from Brutalist beauty, Seacourt Tower – a heady location that’s sparked the new Catalyst Stairs Challenge.
Can you see your photo?
With all that ticked off, we’re delighted to bring you an exciting new website that features a fresh collection of campaigns, fascinating new insights and a rush of news and views. You’ll also find photos of some of our wonderful clients perched on the Catalyst couch. If you’re not featured here yet, please come and visit so we can put that right.
We hope our website would make a weaver bird proud, so please enjoy looking around and let us know what you think.
