The Gordon Russell Design Museum celebrates the life and work of this design pioneer.
Its unique collection of furniture embraces a range of styles from the Arts and Crafts to 30s streamline Modernism; from Utility Furniture to 1980s luxury post modernism.
Requiring a beautifully simple and modern new site, the museum briefed us to deliver a unique and inspiring experience to reflect the physical gallery.
The core objectives for the new museum website were to drive traffic and footfall to the museum, alongside promoting the museums work within the educational sector, and to improve messaging and communication of key information for visitors.
Secondary aims for the site included delivering an easy to use content management system to encourage the museums staff to curate new content, and to provide an archive system to display a comprehensive library of assets.
All wrapped in a beautiful and unique website design.
Getting creative with colour
The site features a striking bright colour palette which helps deliver a unique and creative experience.
Waypoints.js is used to determine when the section has reached the top of the viewport and adds an inline background colour. The smooth colour change is achieved using CSS transitions and provides a modern and different experience.
Five years after launch the site continues to feel modern and fresh, and generates some lovely feedback and the odd business referral.
The website is working beautifully for our users and our internal team, we’re really happy with the results and have every confidence the site will achieve our objectives.

This is one of our most interesting sites, it’s a great example of what can be achieved when the client is prepared to push the boundaries and we get the opportunity to dial the creativity up to 10. The site offers a fresh and unique experience and we love it.
