It’s fair to say that when we were commissioned to create a brand new website for the Rusland Horizon project, the web team did a little dance of joy. Not just because it was one of the first community-led Landscape Partnership Schemes to be funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, but also because the brief looked jam packed with the sort of challenges and unique features.
And so it proved, the website launched in 2017 included an oral history archive, interchangeable modern and historical maps, vlogs and videos, project development information not to mention stunning landscape photography supplied by local volunteer photographers.
Marian Jones, Rusland Horizons Scheme Manager, said: “The Rusland Horizons Scheme encompasses a real living, working landscape. Local people, agencies and visitors are working together to revive traditional skills, and to learn about, enhance and enjoy the heritage, habitats and wildlife of this quiet and very special place. The new website was created with this vision in mind and we think the team at The Creative Branch did a stellar job in communicating our ideas and our vision through the website, while also making it engaging, exciting and easy to use.”
