In 2020 we started work with the Wiener Holocaust Library. Based in Russell Square in London, the library is dedicated to the support of research, learning, teaching and advocacy about the Holocaust and genocide.

As with most projects, we spent a fair amount of time workshopping with the WHL team and got to understand their needs before embarking on the website build.

The site is a WordPress build and features custom functionality around events and exhibitions. There is also an online “collection highlights” section which has our CultureObject plugin running under the hood; we also built a custom plugin which integrates with the Soutron (library catalogue) API. This returns catalogue results next to the normal “on-site” search results.

Once again, we’ve been using Elastic Search to facilitate the search on the site. We’re increasingly impressed with what this amazing tool can do – not only is it blisteringly fast and accurate, but we’ve also been working on a custom ES plugin which will help us build faceted searches in the future.

    I have worked with Thity8 Digital in the past and it was an easy decision to work with them again on a new project. This time it was to evaluate the Britten-Pears Foundation’s digital offer and work on a two-phased website project....

  • Helen Hayden, Head of Marketing, The American Museum in Britain

    Thirty8 Digital certainly made, what seemed a challenging project, run smoothly. By gauging the full staff’s opinion on the old website and where we should be heading with a new one, Thirty8 Digital were able to combine everyone’s thoughts and help us create a clean, easy to navigate, informative website with plenty of scope for further development....

    Thirty8 Digital are rather like a good pair of thigh-high boots. Bold, comfortable and they help you stand out from the crowd, but the engineering is top notch....
