Site will allow museum to show off its collection and history online
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 June, 2010 : - - The Museum of British Surfing is stoked to launch its new branding and website, part of the development work funded by Leader 4 Torridge & North Devon. The charity hopes its new identity will let the worlds surf community know how proud we of our surfing and heritage here in Great Britain.
The emphasis on the wave expresses one of the museum's core aims: to encourage surfers to consider the impact they have the environment, the ocean and ultimately the waves they love to ride!
The new website will enable the Museum of British Surfing to show off its amazing collection and history online, providing an education resource that will be dynamic and flexible and allowing you to contribute your own surfing history here in the UK - see museumofbritishsurfing.org.uk
The work has been completed by North Devon surfers Phil Bridges (logo & branding design), Mat Stillo & Thomas Sharpe (website design & development), under the direction of the chairman of the charity's trustees Richard Gregory and founder Pete Robinson.
Regular updates will be added to the collection area and history sections to build up surfing timelines; and you can even upload your own personal surfing history, or information about your area's surfing past. The surf museum also has a popular Facebook group where supporters can interact.
The Museum of British Surfing plans to open in a permanent exhibition space in Braunton, North Devon in the summer of 2011, alongside continuing to run its popular touring shows and outreach work in schools and communities.
