The South Australian Museum’s new website has won the Culture and Events category of the State 2013 Australian Web Awards this week. The website, designed and developed by LiTHe, will now be entered in the National 2013 Australian Web Awards later this year.
Launched in July this year, the Museum’s website showcases our galleries, research and collections in visually exciting ways and allows easy navigation of our content.
Museum Branding and Digital Strategy Manager Angie Hua led the project, and says “We are so excited about this award. Our new website is fresh, contemporary and easy to use.
The award confirms our belief that cultural institutions like ours need a strong digital presence to engage with the public. We are thrilled that our efforts here at the Museum and at LiThe have really paid off.”
LiThe Communications Advisor Tegan Ali says, “Our focus on user centric design, functionality and accessibility along with a dedicated team of online professionals produce successful websites like these. And we really must thank and congratulate the South Australian Museum for their support, engagement and hard work which were essential ingredients in the results we see today.”
The Museum continues to build on the success of its website, with future plans to launch its first Aboriginal Digitisation Project, which will see images and data for thousands of our objects available online for the first time.
