New website for St Michael’s Mount

It may be one of the most photographed spots in Cornwall, but there’s a new view of St Michael’s Mount on the horizon. Working with Hayle agency Nixon Design, the famous island has launched a redeveloped, visitor-friendly website for the coming season.

Staff at Nixon worked alongside St Aubyn Estates, which manages the island, to produce a site with greater appeal while offering improved accessibility and regularly updated information.

The new look uses Nixon-commissioned illustrations by Tom Jay, writing contributed by Stranger Collective, and images from local photographers Mike Newman, David Griffen, Mik Allerton and Ian Mayou.

For MD, Martin Nixon, the project was an exciting one. “It can be challenging to market a location as culturally and historically rich as St Michael’s Mount, as there’s so much to consider,” he said.

“But the end result is something that we’re really proud of – the website captures the essence of the island by highlighting how alive it is, rather than looking only to the past. It’s a vibrant place with a character of its own, and that’s what comes across now.”
