The Hermitage Virtual Academy

The Hermitage Virtual Academy

December 9, 2009 in Award-winning, e-learning, Web

This extensive, multilingual e-learning project was commissioned by the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia.

It was designed for children ages 5-12.
As Art Director, working with a large international team, I was responsible for developing  interfaces by applying user-centred practices while expanding on the existing Hermitage online-brand. In addition to the usability concerns associated with online learning, cultural sensitivity was considered as the users would be from diverse cultural backgrounds – this greatly influenced the choices of colour and imagery. Extensive style-guides were created to assure continuity of the established look and feel.

The Hermitage Museum site has received the following recognition:
starWorld’s Best Online Museum – National Geographic Traveler
starBest Overall Internet Site – the Russian Internet Academy
starBest of the Web – Forbes Magazine
