BYARD ART

The gallery website for the modern age

Byard Art is an internationally renowned art gallery based in Cambridge, UK. With more than 20 years commercial experience the gallery boasts a portfolio of outstanding artists across mixed media including painter Garry Raymond Pereira and painter Beckie Reed. Located in the heart of the city the gallery attracts thousands of international visitors every year.

A canvas for success

Onespacemedia was approached by Byard Art to reimagine its digital presence and create a robust and simple to use website management system to manage a large and growing collection of art, artists, art fairs, exhibitions and services. The resulting responsive website with its modern, minimal interface design ensures that the art does the talking.

Elegant content organisation

The Byard Art website features a huge amount of content that needs to be organised logically to ensure that site visitors can find what they are looking for. Providing users with hooks to related content to boost discovery and increase site engagement was equally important. Our relational data model ensures that information is cleverly cross linked across the site and that pages deliver lots of visual content in an elegant, organised and compelling user experience.

The new home for artist information

The new website provides Byard Art with powerful tools to manage information and content for individual artists. As well as artist biographies and featured artwork the site also shows the past and upcoming exhibitions and artfairs where an artist's work is shown. Multi-tiered categorisation controls complete the package.

Tablet-focussed responsive design

A detailed analysis of Byard Art's website audience showed that a large proportion browsed the site using tablet devices. Building a responsive website that delivered an optimised experience no matter the device was a critical factor in the project. The resulting website with it's intuitive structure, mobile optimised navigation controls and powerful search functionality provide the finishing touches to an elegant, modern gallery website.

"The Byard Art website represents Onespacemedia's first venture in the Arts sector. The resulting site delivers an emotive and highly visual browsing experience where the art does the talking. The powerful website management system has significantly reduced website administration time and the site will undoubtedly deliver increased business for this forward-thinking art gallery."
