Anna Offermans is going to talk to us about how they created the Rijksmuseum website and what kind of challenges they faced. The meeting will be hosted by our friends at User Intelligence.

Speaker: Anna Offermans

Anna studied Industrial Design Engineering in Delft and currently works as an interaction designer at Fabrique. She was involved in various interactive projects including the Rijksmuseum, SNS REAAL, the Uitburo Amsterdam, Schiphol and Albert Heijn.


Talk: "Up close to the Rijksmuseum"

A few months before the opening of the renovated museum, the brand new website of the Rijksmuseum was launched at the end of 2012. The new website aims to encourage visitors to discover the great art collection on a tablet or laptop. 'Tablet First' was one of the key principles in the design of The responsive website is optimized for use on iPad and tablet: simple, with clear buttons and interactions.

"Rijksstudio" is a special part of the website. Visitors can download 125,000 artwork images in high resolution, create their own art collections, zoom in on artwork and cut and print parts on canvas, laptop bags or even a car. That's all possible now with the "Rijksstudio".

    Thanks, it was impressing to hear Anna’s story about the ‘close-up’ approach for the main areas of the Rijksmuseum site, having the content shine and be as in–your–face as possible with the UI chrome taking second place and be as minimal and distracting as possible. Good job by Fabrique convincing their client to go this direction, which must have been a tad scary and—for the Rijksmuseum at least—a pretty experimental direction.
