The new Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service (NMAS) website has launched. Selesti were appointed to plan and design the interface, along with the HTML conversion of the creative. We are proud to have worked on such an important project to promote the county’s heritage and the world famous landmark Norwich Castle (which we can just about see from our office!).
The NMAS site represents Norwich Castle Museum, The Bridewell, Strangers' Hall, Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, Cromer Museum, Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum, King's Lynn Museums, Great Yarmouth Museums, and Ancient House Museum of Thetford life along with dozens of study centres.
The brief was to provide flexible designs which could be utilised across all of the individual museum’s pages. This meant considering all of the constituent elements which would then been populated and managed by the administrative staff at the service, using their in-house Oracle Universal content management system. From information architecture, creative design concept sign off and when we handed over the HTML, we have been on hand to lend ongoing online consultancy, guidance and support. This will continue as required in the future.
Further developments planned for NMAS includes an events module and an artefact finding search, where users can check all the museums covered for what they want to find and see, encouraging awareness of the variety of interesting things to see and learn and enthusing the visitors to explore another of the museums or venues.
Selesti are accustomed to both ways of serving clients; either delivering a complete digital service from user experience (UX), initial web design, through development and ongoing Search Engine Marketing or providing one element of expertise for a business to then complete the remaining requirements it possesses the resource to manage.
Duracell, NHS, Barclaycard & Disney are good examples of this, and more recent projects we have worked on where we’ve been a key part in an overall marketing solution.
