Established in 1987, the Royal Collection Trust is a department of the Royal Household. It is responsible for the care of the Royal Collection, and manages the public opening of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen and the official London residence of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

The Brief

We were contracted to build a new Drupal website to fulfil a variety of functionality for the Royal Collection:

  1. Managed content

    A content management system to allow content authors and site administrators to manage a whole host of content over a large site map.
  2. User experience

    Ensure the site had a clear and usable navigation to help visitors discover a wealth of information with ease.
  3. Diverse presentation

    Provide a variety of page templates so that content administrators can make decisions about the look and feel of their content, whilst ensuring consistency of style and branding throughout the site.
