Van Gogh Museum
Awardwinning digital experience
For the visual representation of the life of Vincent van Gogh, you should visit the Van Gogh Museum. With it's 200 paintings, 400 drawings and 700 letters it has the biggest collection in the world from this Dutch master. More than 2 million people visiting the museum each year, so the museum definitely deserves a high quality online presence as well for it's yearly 8 million online visitors.
The website of the museum had to be an extension of the physical museum experience and had to become a work of art as well. Next to accessibility and multilingualism, it was important that the visual style is implemented in a way where it respects the collection and is still connected to the brand identity. It was an honor to work with the incredible content created by one of our greatest artists; Vincent van Gogh.

The teams of Q42, Dept and Van Gogh Museum have done a fantastic job. They have built a contemporary site that is at the core of a digital Vincent van Gogh world. With this, we will continue to build on the success of recent years.
