Blue Sail & Leicester City Council

Website build and strategic digital support

We were commissioned by tourism consultancy Blue Sail to work with them on the development of a strategic 5 year marketing plan for the brand new Richard III visitor centre in Leicester.  

Our work focused on supporting the team in Leicester develop a digital strategic vision for the centre.

After delivering workshops with the team in Leicester we were commissioned to design and build the centre’s new website. It’s a simple, mobile-first site built in WordPress and allows the Centre to not only showcase the uniqueness of the venue as a place to visit but also gives them the flexibility to tell the incredible story that surrounds the search for Richard III.

We recently added a custom built WordPress plugin which interfaces with the Centre’s ticketing system, pulling in ticketing information and availability so that users can book online.

  • Half it in size. Then half it again.

    I’m sitting looking at my inbox. It’s a bit full – I’ve been away for a week. I’ve done a bunch of culling but in there are three newsletters catching my eye, all from museums or museum related people. Out of interest, I just pasted each one into http://wordcounttools.com. They average 1,400 words each. Here’s my mental […]

    Yesterday, we revamped and updated our resources section – these are free worksheets, guides and templates which are supposed to help organisations get a better handle on digital engagement.
