Seattle Art Museum’s new website design is open to the public, the museum has just announced. Gone: the turquoise background; the long columns of stuff; and and the small images. Now: Maps, visitor info and events are easy to find. Visuals are big and so is the type. Videos are hanging out.
SAM worked with Hornall Anderson, a Seattle agency, on the design. The site is driven by Microsoft’s SharePoint Server 2013. “We tried to thread the needle of a design that was visually confident and yet, in total service of the art,” said Nick Thiel, Hornall Anderson design director, in a news release.
