To help preserve these findings, the university partnered with Thought and Mortar to design and develop a digital presence, called Performing the Jewish Archive, that can be used to showcase their invaluable work.
During the research stage of the project it soon became clear that the people using the site (our user groups) would come from a wide demographic; young and old, students and teachers, the curious and people who have been deeply affected by this period in time.
In order to truly understand the thinking that had already taken place, before our involvement in the project, we held a series of co-design workshops with the university. The user groups were used to guide the decision making process, with each group used to measure the success, or failure, of our ideas.
The outcome is an archive that introduces people to musical and theatrical works through a series of 'Curated Collections'. There is also a 'Browse' section which allows users to find content, and delve deeper, through a well considered, intuitive search interface.
We are extemely proud to have been a part of this project. A project that delivers fascinating content in equal sucess to the appeal of its visual design.
