ArtsCatalyst.org

The online manifestation of a unique organisation, commissioning art that engages with science.

As hands-on, early adopters of social media, the Arts Catalyst team had quickly grown beyond their previous website.

Having secured the commission to design their online presence (through a credentials pitch) we began a short but intense consulting process. Between us we resolved to create a single site to distil all of their online activities, blogs and video-streaming.

Integrating external content is key to this site. Video feeds and podcast are seamlessly integrated into project pages; customised googlemaps are used as quirky navigation to give a real sense of scale, and social networks are drawn onto the pages via Facebook and various Twitter feeds.

Despite its complexity, the whole site is fully editable by their team and complies with strict accessibility guidelines.

Once again - thank you for your help, attentiveness and most of all for an absolutely cracking design which I'm so proud to be associated with. I think The Arts Catalyst's
online presence is wholly revolutionised by
this great new site

At the heart of our solution was a contemporary showcase for their stunning visual offering. The site is both an archive of 16 years’ work and a window into the world of ongoing and future commissions.
