The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. We were commissioned to produce an impactful website showcasing everything the museum has to offer: a rich history displayed through museum artefacts and art collections, a calendar full of events, and exceptional venue hire opportunities.

One of the primary commercial objectives of the new site was to drive an increase in venue hire. We achieved this by implementing a targeted SEO strategy: conducting keyword research and streamlining the venue hire information, and separating it into easily navigable sections with individual forms for different hiring purposes. The refreshed user experience, combined with engaging visuals and a good use of photography resulted in a professional and clear layout. We continue to work with the client on SEO and further development.

They continue to work closely with us on our SEO, e-marketing for our newsletters and events and creating new templates which reflect our brand, offering expert advice along the way. We’ve been very pleased with their services and would certainly recommend them to others.
