Exhibitions and events are an integral part of the life of any cultural institution, so how to handle ticketing is of vital importance. In this article we look at how we integrated one of the most popular systems used by museums and galleries around the world and how we got it to play nicely with our clients' brands.
As part of our work on rebuilding the Australian Museum website a key aspect was developing and implementing the visual design. And like any design project, the Australian Museum website had its own set of unique challenges worth discussing.
We recently integrated the Art Gallery of South Australia’s collection data from EMu, a leading collection management system. This integration enables the display of data and images from AGSA's extensive collection to the public via our recently launched Collection Search. A senior IC dev walks through the integration process
We recently launched the Collection Search feature on the Art Gallery of South Australia’s website, which enables advanced search across nearly 45,000 items. The IC’s design lead outlines the site’s search features, including a lightbox with zoom that allows you to view the artist's technique on the artwork detail page
The IC has been working with one of Australia's major art institutions, the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA), to envision and execute a digital transformation project. In an initial discovery phase, we collaborated with our colleagues Suzanne Boccalatte and Martin Ford at Boccalatte to uncover and envision what this change might mean.
