Project Details

The award-winning First World War Galleries tell the story of how the ‘Great War’ was fought and won, its impact on people's lives both on the front and at home, and its far-reaching consequences. As part of the calendar of events marking the centenary of the First World War, we created a series of digital media at the Imperial War Museum’s dedicated war galleries.

Our Response

One of the main challenges was to tell the stories of the war through the lives of those who experienced it on the front line and on the home front. We worked very closely with the museum’s experts and exhibition designer CassonMann to create eight major exhibits that tell the story of the ‘Great War.’

Engulfing visitors into a highly immersive experience, our work spans from the recruitment campaigns and realities of trench warfare to making space for visitors to reflect on and contemplate the morals and ethics of war.
