Driffield Town Council contacted Yorkshire Media looking for a new website to communicate a wide range of information to local residents, businesses, and visitors alike. The website had to be inviting, easy to navigate, and fully accessible, with an interactive calendar and facilities for website visitors to book meeting rooms.

Driffield Town Council Website Concept

What we did.

During the early meetings with the council staff, we were struck by their unbridled enthusiasm and passion for the town of Driffield and the work that they do within it. We felt strongly that the design concept we developed for the website should convey that boldness and enthusiasm, as well as including space for large images of the beautiful location of the town. The layout of the homepage included a balance of inspirational messages, useful information for a range of website visitors, and positive stories about the council’s work. We worked closely with the council staff to curate content for the website, and once it was live we held one-to-one training sessions so that they could update the content themselves.
