Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, Barcelona, Website redesignOther
Conxa Rodà, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) & Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC), Barcelona, Spain
The website was originally launched in 2004 when the museum opened its doors after 10-years of renovation works and housing more than 1.000 years of Catalan and European Art. In 2014, the website has been totally revamped to provide a much better and richer user experience, basically through: visual design, enrichment of quality content and functionalities, personalisation, increase of interaction offerings, and making available the online collection of 6.500 art objects.
From the usability and IT matters perspective, main things to note are: the website is AA accessible (following W3C recommendations), it has been developed under open source CMS (Drupal), with WRD_Web Responsive Design.
