Client:Handel House Museum
Tags: Web design, Social Integration
Handel House Museum is based at 25 Brook Street in London and was home the world renowned composer from 1723 until his death in 1759.
The museum had an existing website that was extremely dated in look and limited in functionality. The museum needed a new site that would encourage potential patrons to visit the house, make donations and become long term “friends” of the museum. This would create a sustainable income flow for the museums ongoing upkeep and development. Contrapositive were approached as part of a competitive tendering process to pitch for the site’s development and subsequently won the contract.
- We developed a beautiful, heavily photographic design for the website that displays the museums varied and interesting environment in a tasteful way.
- Built the site on Contrapositive’s bespoke content management platform Merge. (see: www.mergeplatform.com).
- Embedded third party forms for donation, direct debit and email subscriber management.
- Provided consultancy on integration of CRM/booking system
“We are absolutely thrilled with the new site. I think you and the team really came to understand the House and how we wanted the site to look. The site is now a much better reflection of a visit to the museum and is a great addition to our public face.” Sarah Bardwell, Director
