The Indianapolis Museum of (more than just) Art
The IMA is iconic and beloved. But the museum’s audience was mostly limited to the art world. To expand their membership and attract new visitors, we needed to get people thinking about the museum in a whole new way. So we reimagined their visitor experience with a new brand: Newfields, A Place for Nature & The Arts.
The Newfields brand celebrates not only the museum—now known as the IMA at Newfields—but everything it has to offer. From yoga classes and film festivals to craft beer and a 152-acre campus with blooming gardens, scenic waterways, and wooded strolls. World-class art exhibits, yes. But also, so much more.
As the seasons change, so does Newfields.
Visitors can explore everything else happening on campus through an interactive map, which uses Pixi.js ambient animations to seamlessly change between seasons and times of day.
A guided tour through the site.
Friendly language and a visually-driven menu make the nav bar as welcoming and approachable as a museum docent. After all, “Do & See” sounds a lot more inviting than “Schedule of Exhibits.”
Exhibitions & Calendar
Easy ticketing for easy visits.
The calendar search filters make it easy to find exactly what interests you and reserve tickets. And since it’s integrated with VBO museum ticketing software, CRM and donor management tools are already built in.
Build, test, rebuild, retest.
We did round after round of usability testing to make sure the site was a well-oiled machine, no matter what device or browser.
Not just something for everyone, lots of things for everyone.
Newfields is much more than an internationally renowned art museum. Now, they’ve got a website that proves it. Every page showcases fun things to see, do, taste and explore on campus—inviting people to visit once, then again and again.
