The Jewish Museum approached us in June 2017 asking us to bid for development of their new website. We jumped at the chance – we’d visited the museum before and loved their approach to content and exhibitions as well as their approach to visual design and gallery spaces.

The project was slightly unusual in that it entailed the launch of the Learning section before the launch of the main site. From a design and technical point of view this meant we had to think about some things back to front, making sure that features for the Learning site weren’t going to end up duplicated when we began the development of the main site.

The Learning site went live in November 2017 – we then began the main site project which went live in September 2018.

There’s lots to see on the new site, from a faceted resource search for teachers, to the use of our very own CultureObject plugin to bring in collections items for Jewish Britain: A History in 50 Objects, a simple branded shop and filterable, searchable event calendar.

I’m so pleased we made the decision to appoint Thirty8 Digital to run our website development project; they had brilliant creative ideas, were great communicators and really importantly they understand the challenges of developing a museum website (especially doing so on a tight budget!) The end result is fantastic, and the ongoing support they’ve given us since the launch has also been brilliant.

    When we secured the funding for Scaling Up Change Minds from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, one of our first priorities was to appoint a web developer.   The Change Minds website needed to serve multiple purposes:  as an advocacy too for Change Minds, as a source of information for potential partners and participants, and as a tool for delivery of individual Change Minds 12-week mental wellbeing programmes.  The site also needed to be easy to manage and update once the Scaling Up Project finished and Change Minds projects started rolling out across the country.  We also wanted it to look good! Working with Mike and the team at Thirty8 has helped us achieve all of this....

Mike and his team were a pleasure to work with, accommodating our uncontrollably changing deadlines and working patiently to help us – 100% website novices – to understand the technical aspects of the project that we had to be exposed to (and Mike was very good at keeping this to a minimum)....
