Since 1988, Aberdeen Science Centre has been providing inspiration for children across the North East of Scotland. With 30 years of goodwill and happy memories within the heart of the city centre, we were delighted to have been chosen to work on a brand new website for the centre. Having provided a rebrand for ASC in 2018, we were looking to transfer over the brilliant new brand into the website – as well as showcasing the exciting new exhibits going on at the centre.
The newly renovated Science Centre has set its sights on the future. Their new facility includes state-of-the-art exhibits, a brand-new second floor, and corporate facilities to rival any in the North-East. To support this newly modernised offering, the Aberdeen Science Centre website needed to reflect this investment. The previous website lacked interactivity, online purchase options and didn’t show the passion the Science Centre team has for all things STEM. Our aim was to deliver something eye-catching, easily navigable, fun, and above all, effective in the selling of tickets, bookings, and events.
The site had to address the growing needs of the online community. We delivered everything that ASC asked from effective mobile optimisation, custom integrated taxonomies, applications, and CMS driven elements. The mobile first approach allowed us to deliver an exceptional website experience for an increasingly on the move audience. Some of the more complex elements required a great deal of custom PHP & jQuery to get the right additional functionality for a very custom build. We are absolutely delighted with the response the website has received from both the public and from staff.
“Having used Minto Branding’s team in a previous role I had no hesitation in engaging them again for the new Aberdeen Science Centre. The team are excellent and listen to what we want and are able to deliver exactly what we required, on time and to a very high specification.”
