The Business Team within Richmondshire District Council has the responsibility for raising the profile of Richmondshire as “a great place for business investment and business growth”, and specifically for ensuring that they maximise opportunities to attract inward investment from both Foreign Direct Investment and potential business relocations.
The first stage was to design branding for the Business Growth & Engagement Team and once approved, roll out brand guidelines and a toolkit of assets for the team to use in internal and external communications. We followed this up with web development using WordPress. Being both visually attractive and intuitive for users, the site really does make a strong business case promoting the advantages of locating in Richmondshire. It also scores very high for accessibility which was a key requirement of the contract.
