Framing the art

When Monkii began work on ACCA’s new website, it was clear the star of the project would be the art itself. The solution was a design that worked as a canvas for the art, stripped back with simple typography.

The technology behind the site, however, is anything but simple. For example, the ACCA shop now integrates with exhibitions and events to improve e-commerce and overall user experience. The site was also built to be extremely flexible in the backend; ACCA can choose tile shapes and colours for each new exhibition.

The site, built in Drupal, is a project that Monkii is particularly proud of – a site with a strong design focus supported by intuitive navigation.
