Great Museums Television is a documentary series celebrating the world of museums. We designed the site to showcase the work from Great Museums the same way museums present their collections.
By using a dark color palette, the design gives the feeling of being in a dark theater watching a film, and allows the dynamic imagery to pop off the page. Working with their existing logo, we modernized the brand and used thin white rules as a way to organize information throughout the site. The Explore page, with it's purely visual presentation, draws upon the experience of walking into a large gallery of art on a wall, where you can pick a piece to approach and discover.
Every piece of content can be shared and linked. The site is an HTML 5 compliant site, with video and animation that works on mobile devices as well as pre-HTML5-video-capable browsers, and is built on the Expression Engine CMS.
