South Yorkshire Archaeology Service

Branding, Publicity and Website

Countryscape worked with the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service to develop a brand identity, promotional literature and website for the South Yorkshire Historic Environment Characterisation project - aka "South Yorkshire Timescapes" (supported by English Heritage).

The project aimed to explore the history of South Yorkshire through a process called Historic Environment Characterisation - a method of using maps, historical records and archaeological evidence to help understand the evolution of place and establish the age of its characteristic features.

This work involved producing a logo and identity, a promotional flyer and poster, together with a website providing a legacy of the hard work that was invested in the project. The website was developed to target a public audience, with a focus on providing a clear and accessible resource for history enthusiasts. The site is compliant with international web accessibility standards (W3C) and includes print style sheets to ensure that printed web pages look attractive and contain all relevant information from the screen view. The site was developed using the Drupal content management system and contains over 8,000 pages.
