Overview

I worked directly with an interaction designer on this project to reimagine how the gallery was presented online. We developed a simple word-press build website with a clean backend to allow the gallery employees to easily update it. We started the project with a detailed user journey based off a scrollable homepage which ordered the exhibitions chronologically. When completed the gallery has a catalogue store section and in depth updates page including Journal posts, Art Fair posts and Art Expos. The website also includes an added selector bar which will allow a user to view a timeline of the exhibitions from the gallery since its first one in 2012. The project was completed in June 2020 and it's something I have been managing outside of regular working hours.

My Role

Project lead, Competitor analysis and review of current best practices, project scoping, project delivery, wireframes, prototyping, user experience design, UI design, communication with key stakeholders, developer handover, QA on staging and development environments. Key stakeholder responsibility for in-depth research, and end-to-end design of the user experience.

Challenge

Complete redesign of a website for a contemporary art gallery in Berlin. Build unique shop functionality, an interesting way of displaying exhibitions and artist profiles.

Outcome

A contemporary website using up to-date web technologies build on a word-press backend system.

📣 Please note: Above is a link to the website. As time moves on and business requirements chance the website has undoubtably been updated since its initial conception. But the ethos, simplicity and backend structure remains the same to its current iteration.
