About Motive Television

Motive Television produces a mix of documentary, lifestyle programming, travel shows and live event coverage. In 2012, Motive were nominated for three IFTA awards for their documentary output and won Sports Programme of the Year for ‘Man on a Mission’.

Client Brief

The purpose of the new website is to promote and build the brand Motive Television. The target audience is commissioning editors, journalists and distribution companies. Their previous website allowed the client to do only the most basic of changes, and they could not even change the home page or load video or photo content.

The new website should be easy to use, manage and update, while reflecting the ambition, quality and the intent of the company.

Our Solution

Software Design worked with Motive to deliver a website that reflects the quality of their television output. A new CMS was introduced to allow the Motive team to have full control over the content of their website, including the ability to upload and display their content in a simple and straightforward manner.

The Project

We chose WordPress as the CMS for the website. The site was built using responsive design, so that it would display optimally on all devices. We conducted a thorough design process, giving the client several concepts to choose from.

The website showcases their extensive portfolio, allowing visitors to filter by programme type. They can then watch embedded videos for many of the programmes. The website also features a prominently displayed Latest News section, where Motive can keep readers up to date on their awards, programme commissions and other news.


“We are delighted with the finished website. As an award-winning video content company, working in a highly visual medium, we were not happy with our previous website. It simply did not adequately reflect the quality of our work.

We needed a slickly designed, highly interactive website, to showcase our work and to publish our latest news. Right throughout the project, the team at Software Design were fantastic to deal with, and they really delivered on the brief. I would have no hesitation in recommending Software Design to any business that is looking for a professional website.”
