mima, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, is one of the UK’s leading galleries for modern and contemporary art and craft.
They required a new web design which utilised their exhibition photography. It needed to become a more user-friendly site which could attract new visitors to the gallery.
The design is very clean and minimal to showcase their imagery, it uses a contrasting colour palette with the mima corporate typefaces. The site was launched in 2013, built by Eighty8Design.
I am a freelance Graphic and Web Designer based in Teesside, North East England with nine years commercial experience. Previously I was a designer for over five years at a creative agency in Middlesbrough before I became freelance in October 2009. I love clever, memorable concepts and clean design.
MY EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:

'Amy is a pleasure to work with. She's extremely patient and has an eye for detail. She produces very well organised design files for our development team and really well thought through designs. She considers how the site will work, not just how it will look, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for functional web design.'

Michelle Teasdale, MeSign
'I've had the pleasure of working with Amy on a number of projects and I have always been delighted with the results. It's obvious from her portfolio that she's highly talented, however, the portfolio can't illustrate what a joy she is to work with.'
Andrew Taylor, Utterly Forked
