Institution: 
The Norfolk Botanical Garden
Designer: 
MUSEO Group
Why: 

The Norfolk Botanical Garden has a beautifully diverse audience visiting their physical space.  From children to seniors, strolling families to sports teams were all welcomed and cultivated with the same care and attention showered upon the plants they came to visit.  The problem was that their site was antiquated; their calendar a hard-coded mess and audience engagement required a printing press.  By redesigning their site with elegant and dynamically driven content such as a calendar, e-cards and an integrated touting system they now have the tools to knock down their Garden wall and reach out to the world.
