Leeds digital agency Numiko has completed a nine-month project to launch a website for the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

Numiko won the contract after a competitive tender process, and its website aims to increase awareness of Cornish Mining and its impact on the world and attract more visitors to the physical site itself.

The content featured on the site, including images of the landscape, maps of the areas and things to do, was informed by Numiko's audience research which it carried out before starting work on the build and design.

One feature, 'Build your own brochure', allows potential visitors to plan attractions, events and activities which they can then print out or share with friends.

Numiko’s managing director, Emma Wensley, said: “It’s been great fun working on this project. Our previous experience with tourism, leisure and cultural destinations, coupled with the amazing content we’ve had to work with, has allowed us to create a website that we’re really proud of which will deliver a measurable impact to the Cornish Mining destinations.”

Because of the importance of international visitors, the site also offers translations into three European languages.
