Website Launch: Haida Gwaii Museum

We are honoured to have helped bring a world-class museum to the world.

Trapeze is privileged to have recently designed and developed the Haida Gwaii Museum website to help educate visitors about Haida Gwaii art and culture.

Haida Gwaii is an archipelago located off the northwest coast of British Columbia. The name means “Islands of the people”, referring to the First Nations communities who live here and share a deep ancestral connection to the land and sea.

It was essential that the website capture the essence of the traditions and history of the Haida Gwaii people. This was achieved through a contemporary design and natural colour palette, complementing the materials used in many of the artifacts on exhibit. The website design works in unison with stunning photography and crisp typography. We believe this project flawlessly connects history and modern design providing users with an effective communication and marketing tool.

We hope you enjoy visiting the website as much as we did creating it.
