We are stoked to launch our new branding and website for the Museum of British Surfing – part of our development work funded by Leader 4.
We hope our new identity will let the world’s surf community know how proud we of our surfing and heritage here in Great Britain.
The emphasis on the ‘wave’ expresses one of our core aims: to encourage surfers to consider the impact they have the environment, the ocean and ultimately the waves they love to ride!
Our website will enable us to show off our amazing collection and history online, providing an education resource that will be dynamic and flexible – allowing you to contribute your own surfing history here in the 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 our trustees Richard Gregory and founder Pete Robinson.
Each week new updates will be added to the collection area and history sections to build up a complete timeline.
The Museum of British Surfing plans to open an exhibition space in the surfing hub of Braunton, North Devon in the near future – alongside this we’ll be running our ‘mobile museum’ featuring touring displays, school and community visits, and a programme of special events linked to surfing culture, art, music and film.
We hope to be able to tell you more about the location soon, but our plan is to run new exhibitions in 2011 & 2012 while we put together a bigger project to redevelop the proposed site to give us more space.
We’ll be keeping you up to date with the progress of the museum, upcoming events & new donations. Thank you for your support, and see you out the back!
