Heading Stateside: Introducing Frankly, Green + Webb USA
It has been a busy couple of years for Frankly, Green + Webb during which we’ve been fortunate to work with some fantastic clients on exciting projects in the UK and beyond. As we’ve grown, so has interest in our work, particularly in the US. So a few months ago we began to throw around ideas about how we could properly support work across the Atlantic. We knew we needed someone who had extensive experience and knowledge of the cultural sector and had delivered real digital projects on the ground. They needed to understand both the aspirations and the constraints our clients work within. We have to be honest; we thought our ‘Mary Poppins’ style list might be a bit too much to ask.
And then we bumped into an old colleague, Laura Mann. Laura has all the experience and skills we needed, plus a few more. Her natural curiosity, capacity to quickly understand and solve problems and work with a multitude of different departments and people make her a perfect fit. So, today, we are very proud to announce that Laura will be joining the team and with this we are opening Frankly, Green + Webb USA.
Laura comes to us with 20 years of experience in that unique area where culture, learning and technology meet. At Mediatrope Interactive Studio, Antenna Audio, and as an independent consultant, Laura has worked on dozens of museum projects including online exhibitions for the International Museum of Women, large-scale website redesigns and gallery interactives for the Smithsonian and MFA Boston, and mobile programs for clients from SFMOMA to the Newport Mansions. We first worked with Laura at Antenna, and we reconnected in 2011, working together on the Trailhead to Utah project, for the Natural History Museum of Utah.
Laura’s first outing as part of FG+W will be at one of our favourite conferences Museums and the Web 2013 in Portland. So, if you’re wanting to hear a little more about some of the insights we have gained from our recent V&A research, learn more about our Mobile Experiences : Cultural Audiences (ME:CA) initiative or find out a bit more about new trends in the ways cultural organisations are approaching digital interpretation then drop her a line. Laura would love to have a chat in Portland over a cup of tea (or even a pint).
