Our new look

Even conservation societies need to move with the times and when a logo and website have served you for more than a decade, they’re bound to be a bit tired – and to lag behind current thinking and technology.

The central purpose of our new website is simple: we want to offer more to our members in the electronic media that have become, for many of us, the primary way to communicate and gather information.

With its strong colours and simple, graphic approach, our new logo underlines our commitment not only to the past of Brighton and Hove but to its future

That’s not to say we’ve abandoned our Regency heritage. The colours we’ve chosen are inspired by the colour schemes of the Royal Pavilion and other important, historic buildings in the city. The bright blue, for example, is an echo of the North Gallery and the Banqueting Room ceiling, while you’ll see the rich red in many rooms, including the Music Room.

The column in the centre of our logo follows the architectural theme of the capital in our old look – it is a stylised, graphic version of a fluted Georgian column, although it also echoes period coving and the reeding found on architraves.

As for the website itself, you’ll have seen that it has been radically updated and simplified, with new sections such as the Learning centre. We hope to extend the content over time, making www.regencysociety.org the first port of call for everyone who cares about our city, its history and its evolution in the 21st century.
