Engineering wonders lie within the Richardsonian Romanesque building that houses The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum. The museum opened in 2007, and Graphic Details was there from the start to assist with positioning, messaging, branding, and marketing collateral.
The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum uses its architecturally magnificent building, mammoth steam pumping engines, and the adjacent historic Chestnut Hill Reservoir to educate visitors about one of the country’s earliest metropolitan water systems.
A Whole New Look
The Waterworks Museum website redesign was done from the ground up, focusing on content structure and usability. The end result is dynamic without being overwhelming and helps guide the user to useful information and interesting history.
We built some custom functionality—supported by an easy-to-use back-end—that makes both content management and user experience more streamlined.
We were inspired by the unique architectural and engineering features of the Museum to create a set of custom icons to help organize content on the site.
