Numiko has revealed its new “vibrant and dynamic” website for the British Museum.

The Leeds agency was awarded the work following a competitive tender process.

“We selected Numiko to design and build our new website from a very competitive field based on their excellent track record and value for money,” said Michael Tame, from the British Museum.

“They lived up to this and more, and working with them has been as much a partnership as a client supplier relationship.”

The agency was briefed to create a new digital space to reach “greater and more diverse audiences around the world.” The new design features more movement, colour and interactivity.

It also had to integrate the museum’s event calendar and “respectfully retain the authenticity of the brand.”

“At each stage of the project Jaron, Dan and the team have worked closely with our design, product and content teams and were proactive in suggesting solutions to tricky problems and handling our internal stakeholders successfully,” added Tame.

“And the resulting website, launched on time and to budget, definitely meets our key words of ‘Welcoming, elegant, dynamic and authoritative’, and has been extremely well received by visitors, stakeholders and the wider museum staff and our peers.”

Today’s launch is the first of a number of phases, as Numiko works to bring in a new collections platform, to make it one of the “most innovative and extensive museum search platforms in the world.”

It’s the latest in a series of museum sites by the firm, which has recently  redeveloped the Science Museum’s digital presence, including  the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester and the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.
