Bringing an 100 year old story to life
Providing visitors a deeply personal connection with the Anzac experience drove the content and aesthetic development for both the website and National ANZAC Centre. The website houses an extensive database of content which supports both the responsive website, and the interactive screens at the Centre.
Users are presented with a character card when entering the Centre, and they assume the identity of one of 30 Anzac characters or two of their foes. The visitor is transported through history with the aid of interactive screens, rare memorabilia and in-depth digital story telling. The content is presented according to the user’s identity card which displays content onto interactive screens, all housed in the Drupal 7 CMS. After exploring the soldier’s stories, users have the opportunity to post live comments to the interactive walls at the Centre and to the website.
Launched in November 2014, the website is a leading example of user experience, interactive design, and immersive learning. The website will allow all users to celebrate Anzac history, and support thousands of people visiting Albany for commemorative activities throughout 2014 and into the future.
Morgan Strong, Manager, Digital Services at the Western Australian Museum:
“Precedent were a joy to work with. We have an experienced technical team, and working with them felt like an extension of the Museum. Due to compressed timelines, the content and design had to constantly change and working with Precedent we were able to roll out innovative, agile solutions to deal with the site as it evolved. ”
