The Heritage Council

Re-focusing how the Heritage Council communicates to their audiences online

The Challenge

The Heritage Council helps to preserve and promote Ireland's history, heritage and culture. When we first came on board, their existing website was content heavy, confusing, and difficult to navigate.


The Solution

Beginning with a content audit of the existing website, we researched goals of website visitors to understand what they needed from the site.  Information architecture was created that mapped audience needs to content, re-framing the emphasis of the website so it is easier for audiences find relevant information about projects and programmes as well as understanding the remit of the Heritage Council. 

The Outcome

The new heritagecouncil.ie website has a contemporary look and feel with an intuitive navigation and responsive design.  Heritage Council staff can make updates with ease via a user friendly CMS and the site meets up to date accessibility standards. In addition, we created two microsites heritageinschools.ie and heritageweek.ie, to sit alongside the main site.
