The Client:

Famine Museum

The Brief

In 2013, Matrix were commissioned by Yellowstone Communications to help to develop a kiosk based touch screen interface for the Irish Famine Museum. The system is driven by a user friendly interface to present historic material on a touch-screen-based system.

The Solution

Matrix developed a robust locally hosted solution presenting the material in an intuitive way with dynamic javascript-based controls optimized for touchscreen control. The content ( including high quality scans of authentic documents from the 1840’s ) is divided into 9 main sections to mirror the layout of the actual museum.

Key Features

  • 1.  Controls optimized and customized for touch screen control
  • 2.  Pinch-control ( multi touch ) for zooming in on documents
  • 3.  Easily updateable content vault for scalability
  • 4.  Active and responsive design
  • 5. Robust and reliable automated hardware / software solution

what people say

WoofAdvisor Working with the team at Matrix Internet has been a very positive and rewarding experience. As a (one man) non techie startup founder, undertaking a very ambitious and complex website, finding the right web agency was absolutely critical. The team's approach was perfect: a couple of preliminary workshops to make sure everyone fully understood the brief, target market, bullseye customer etc., followed by the creation of a number of very insightful Personas and accompanying Scenarios. This approach continued through to completion, with helpful advice and insightful suggestions at every stage of the project, many of which found their way into the finished design and functionality. While I felt some of these were not have been fully covered by the brief, there was zero slippage on budget. The project was delivered 100% to the agreed budget, which was highly competitive to start with. User testing undertaken by me has been universally positive in terms of Design, Layout, (the many) Features, and most importantly, Ease of Use. I really don't do recommendations lightly, but Matrix Internet have successfully turned my dream into a reality that I am very proud of, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
