Case Study : Commissions North

Supported by the Arts Council England, Commissions North provide a showcase for contemporary public art commissions in the North of England, plus advice, information and brokerage for clients. Working closely with Ripe Design, Presence built a dynamic and accessible website to showcase CN’s extensive portfolio and to provide a wealth of information for potential commissioners and artists.

With a large collection of work, including regional landmarks such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the National Glass Centre and the Angel of the North, Commissions North required a website which provided fast and efficient access to a database of over 150 public art commissions. The database is thoroughly indexed and categorised to allow sorting by sector, location, artist, materials/medium and client, and can be accessed through the showcase, site map or through the custom-built search facility.
