Our work with Yorkshire Futures involved the design of a completely new ‘look and feel’ for the site, the deployment and customisation of functionality to support user-generated content, the creation of sophisticated site search and browse features, the creation of a number of associated ‘mini-sites’ and the migration of thousands of documents and other data from existing databases.

Technologies: Drupal CMS, PHP

Client comment: "We worked closely with Futurate on the re-development of our website, which is an essential component of our day-to-day operations. The project was complex and challenging, partly because of the volume of content involved and partly because of the need to provide innovative, dynamic ways for our site users to access and share content. Futurate approached the task with rigour, creative flair and a real determination to ensure that both Yorkshire Futures and our site users got the very best available solution.  The team clearly have a strong grasp on the technical, creative and people issues associated with building larger-scale websites.  I highly recommend them." - Ian Aspinall, Communications Manager, Yorkshire Futures

Our brief was to create a highly informative, content rich and visually engaging site that would meet 2 main objectives – to represent Yorkshire Futures as a core centre of intelligence for the region, and to ensure that the new website would be the first port of call for anyone with an interest in Yorkshire’s social, environmental and economic development.
