Link has been awarded the contract to redevelop the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) site in time for the April 2008 relaunch of their brand.
Launched in 1999, the NPG site has only undergone one small upgrade, in 2005. Since then the Gallery has implemented a Collection Management System, KE EMu, which has been set up to feed information to the website.
When the NPG closes its doors in April 2008 in the lead up to moving into its new home, currently under construction, the website will become the ‘face’ of the Gallery for a full nine months.
The redeveloped site will interpret and present the rich content collected and published by the NPG over the past eight years in a stimulating, engaging and informative style throughout the closure and beyond.
The cultural sector is at the forefront of exploring new ways to connect internet users with works for study, enjoyment, interpretation and appreciation. It is also fast becoming a leader in the promotion of on-site exhibitions, galleries, services and programs and we are enthusiastic about the opportunity to continue to enhance Link’s collaborative involvement with this sector.
