The Warhol Museum
The full redesign, rewrite and redevelopment of the Warhol’s publicfacing website was a collaboration between the museum and the team at Spellerberg Associates. The big, easily-readable typography and clean design provides an ideal aesthetic for presenting Warhol’s work. Marty Spellerberg explains the goals: “We wanted the website to show visitors the experience they would have at the Warhol. The site needed to be colourful and feel playful, like Andy Warhol’s art, and it needed to be accessible.” The team’s commitment to accessibility saw them working with experts: “We collaborated with a pair of web accessibility specialists – Sina Bahram of Prime Access Consulting, who is blind, and Andrea Skeries, who is sighted – to identify and mitigate barriers to access.” This resulted in the website achieving WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.0 AA compliance, and improves the web experience for visitors across a spectrum of abilities. This includes those who are deaf or hard of hearing; anyone who interacts with the site via keyboard or mouse due to limited mobility/motor control; people who are blind or have low vision and use a screen reader or employ zoom tools to enlarge the page; as well as users with cognitive disabilities.
