Auckland Castle website

This project was a collaboration with Piers Aitman (coding), Lynda S, James H and Ann C. It was a pleasure to work with them all. In fact Auckland Castle was full of great people. If you ever get the chance to go I recommend it.

The designing of a large website makes for a long project. It’s a bit like making a reference book where the pages can be any order. Having a strong branding, colour palette and signage was important with all the information on offer.
The illustrations of the buildings was a particularly interesting part, trying to get disparate styles of architecture to have a coherence.

The interactive google map was a nice touch. Notice the amount of portals to different pages. Here’s a close up of the illustrations.
