Holyrood is Scotland’s fortnightly political and current affairs magazine that keeps people informed with its award-winning and thought-provoking editorial. Isle recently completed a full creative redesign and technical rebuild of the Holyrood website. The new website carefully balances commercial and editorial requirements and delivers an excellent experience for the reader.

Engaging content

The new site contains a range of content categories including breaking news published on a daily basis, with topic-based related article links to similar content. Longer deep-dive reads with comment and analysis from Holyrood’s award-winning writers and also a range of events covering every aspect of Scottish politics including policy briefings, conferences and awards.

Efficient publishing

The Holyrood news desk is a fast moving and frantic environment. The team needed a robust and streamlined publishing platform to ensure content can be uploaded quickly and easily. The website is powered by our hybrid cloud & headless content management system which has delivered a stable and responsive tool for the editorial team.

Liam Kirkaldy, Online Editor at Holyrood Magazine, commented... "We have received really positive feedback from our audience while our page views have increased significantly in the first month following the rollout."
