The new museum, now double in size, had a new brand identity and truly unique logo developed to fully reflect the new, younger and more outspoken brand. We innovatively designed and created pages surrounded by brand interruptions but without a single compromise to usability or accessibility. We put the museum’s iconic photography at the heart of our designs. Our designers immersed themselves in a huge analogue collection of images and undertook a selective digital archiving process, to create a raft of imagery on which to base the site and truly bring it to life, grasping viewers at one glance. The website was ready ahead of schedule ready for the museum’s ‘soft’ re-opening, the client was over the moon with the site, and initial user feedback was very positive.
