Seldom Seen – Designing the App

Developing the apps took place over a 2 year period, with the final versions being completed and launched in October 2016. The process involved site visits, historical research, familiarisation with the Art Gene archive for each site, public consultation, product development think tank sessions and on and offsite product testing.

Join in on our sessions with PAN and test users to gather feedback about user experiences and brainstorm all the potentials such apps could include.
