Well, last week’s post by Lindsey on “What you need to know before making a mobile experience” seems to have gone down well. Good to see that people are finding it useful. Just Lindsey and I left in the office this week, as Alyson is taking a well-earned break and Laura is still away. Last […]

Last week saw us drawing near to the end of several projects, as we began to discuss others with new clients. I was gathering together all of the audience research for the ss Great Britain project; all the onsite and phone interviews and narrated visits. Having transcribed many of the latter, I feel like I’ve […]

Weeknotes: 26.2016 – asking the audience, visitor research at five different sites

Last week was all remaining hands to the deck, whilst Lindsey was soaking up the sun and feta cheese (although she did make it back for a bit of journey map workshop planning on our rather strange post-Referendum vote Friday). The National Gallery work continued apace, with planning and research to inform a series of workshops […]

Well. We’re reeling a bit at FGW from the results of the referendum. The cultural sector is an international sector – we work, play, discuss –  always with passion – and learn across many national boundaries.  FGW has worked across Europe from the very beginning.  So this is a difficult moment.  But we remain committed […]

Last week was a bit of a repeat of the week before for my colleagues, as National Gallery, Science Museum, AMNH etc projects all continued. It’s a busy month for us! Which made it not a great time for me to be heading off to Bucharest for We Are Museums, but I’m glad I did. […]

Weeknotes: 23.2016 – deep into project work

A belated weeknotes for week 23, apologies. It was a quieter week for FGW the week before last week; with several different projects on the go we all had our heads buried in data, reports and frameworks. Alyson and Lindsey were presenting findings from the discovery phase at the National Gallery, the next steps are brand […]

Whilst my colleagues were deeply entrenched in our projects with AMNH, Bloomberg grantees, the National Gallery, the Science Museum and Battle Abbey (phew!) it was a very gamey week for me last week (one of the best sorts of week). From a fantastically fun Gamecamp on Saturday, through our first UK Getting to Grips with […]

We’ve got a huge link dump to share this week, but first, some project updates. In the States, Laura was flat out with stakeholder interviews at two different organisations. In the UK, things were equally busy. From Lindsey: “I kicked off Bordesley Abbey last week – meeting with the small but perfectly formed Abbey team […]
