Style guide—language and tone

My goal was to find the right travel angle and positioning for different areas of NSW and Sydney, and create groups and segments that could be used as personas for areas. This was particularly helpful when diversifying the category of landing pages created—pages for areas, pages for seasonal attractions, pages for need, pages for celebrations. This taxonomy eventually helped guide the internal link building between these pages.

Borrowed from an internal government style guide, it was fairly limited for the scope of this work, but evolved over time to reflect approved changes that could then be used by other writers to maintain consistency.
