UNIVERSITY MUSEUM UTRECHT

In the University Museum Utrecht, you enter the world of Utrecht University. Here you can get a glimpse into the lives of scientists, both past and present. The museum is filled to the nook with taxidermied animals, skulls, curiosities, and even a particle accelerator.

We developed a new website for the museum. One where you can find practical information for a visit, but can also browse through the collection online from the comfort of your own home.

Layout and navigation

The University Museum wanted a flexible website consisting of different blocks, to be displayed in different areas of the site. The navigation had to be as simple as possible. To clarify their ideas, they made an extensive cut-and-paste collage of the desired design. Fantastic! It provided an easy and clear way to communicate about the navigation and layout of the website.

Design

We created wireframes based on the museum’s layout and translated their current visual identity to a design suitable for the website.

As an added bonus to the regular website, we created a separate site where visitors can browse through the museum’s collection with high-res images and various search methods.
