Shipton under Wychwood

An online identity for a Cotswold village and community

The brief
Shipton under Wychwood is a real village – not a tourist destination (although it has so much to offer to visitors) but a community with lots ‘going on’. The village had a website that had served the village for a number of years but hadn’t kept pace with technology. The village needed a website with a Content Management System that was easy to use and a website that was easy and enjoyable to navigate.

The idea
A website that echoed the heritage and look & feel of a weekend newspaper supplement – familiar and accessible.

The effect
A website that is an asset to the village. Apart from an information of ‘what’s on’ and ‘where to find’ website, it makes everyone in the village feel proud to be part of it. Some are even thinking it may increase the value of property prices!
