Building a New Site for the Royal Academy of Music
Developing a modern website for a 200 year old internationally renowned institution takes some planning. Our design partners Mystery had already done some extensive brand development with the Academy which helped lay the foundations for our initial discussions regarding the sites focus, key functions and primary goals.
From the planning meetings wireframes, site outlines and mood boards were developed and all presented to the academy’s board at key points.
A very detailed technical spec accompanied by an interactive wireframe (created with Balsamic) was completed and we were ready to begin production.
One of the great things about this much planning is that when the production process begins the client and all the team have a very clear idea about what is happening and when.
The site was designed by Mystery and built by us to the agreed schedule and launched early 2015.
Since the launch we have extended the sites reach including new interfaces that pull from the database and present upcoming events via TV screens in the foyer.
