Today sees the launch of our new website for Land of Legends, a project developed by Literature Wales with funding from Visit Wales, showcasing the best of Welsh literature, culture, and myths, in the very places which created and inspired them. This was the culmination of several months collaboration with Literature Wales and the hugely talented illustrator Pete Fowler @themonsterist – best-known for Super Furry Animals’ most iconic album covers.
Land of Legends takes you on a magical journey to the heart of who we are, the stories and characters that made us.
Stories about pirates, rebels, smugglers and lost lovers – as well as Wales connections to some of the worlds most beloved books – these are all being brought together in one place, online, for the first time, through a partner project led by Literature Wales.
As lead creative partner we were responsible for the new brand, design and build of the website taking visitors on an interactive storybook tour through Wales. Book-lovers visiting Wales can now plan a personalised trip based around their favourite books and legends. We were delighted to collaborate with Pete Fowler who has created a series of evocative illustrations for each theme and a map which is used on the website.
