Combine

Combine is an exciting creative heritage project that aims to capture and promote the people, places and traditions that define the East Midlands’ rich agricultural past.

10th Planet were asked to devise a brand and design and build a live, regularly updated and participatory website based on that brand. The look needed to be modern but also evoke the past. We love a straightforward brief!

Inspiration for the logo came from badges found on old farm machinery and the outer shape was derived from the blades of a combine harvester. The supporting look and feel of the site and future printed material came from looking at old maps, books and documents already discovered for the project. As with the logo, the main challenge was to make something as modern a website look like something from the past which would invite members of the public to share their memories but have a simple and familiar navigation.

The Combine project is set to span five years of research, education, exhibitions and mini-projects over five areas of the East Midlands, so the site is the main hub for news and promotion of future events, whilst also being the archive for all the material collected over its life.

Junction Arts is Live

Junction Arts is recognised for high quality rurally-based participatory arts work that changes peoples lives, builds confidence and skills, increases communication and supports community and personal empowerment. The Derbyshire-based organisation’s┬ávision is to increase and extend access to high quality arts through inspirational, innovative participatory arts programmes and projects via partnership and collaboration within rural areas of the East Midlands.

In a time where arts funding is a constant victim of cuts, Junction Arts needed to publicise the success and importance of their work and were finding their existing website was neither engaging its visitors or conforming to the styles defined in their recent rebranding excersise.

10th Planet were called in to provide a complete visual overhaul and to add several new levels of functionality and interactivity for the site’s visitors and Junction Arts themselves. These included:

  • Full content management and control for Junction Arts
  • Blog and news updates
  • Project viewer
  • Past projects archive
  • Photo gallery
  • Video area and YouTube integration
  • Social media integration
  • Viewer contributions and comments

We also consolidated the wide array of conflicting domain names, email addresses and hosting packages to all operate under a single name:
