‘Inspiring generations, remembering the Few and honouring the Many’ is the motto of the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum opened in January 2019. A collaboration led by Bromley Council and Biggin Hill Memorial Museum Trust, Surface Impression designed and built the website alongside an in-gallery interactive for the new museum. The common aim of the resources is the telling of the story of Britain’s most famous fighter station, and in particular its role during the Second World War and the Battle of Britain.

The outcome is an attractive user centered interface that follows Biggin Hill branding and visual identity. The website both aids the planning of a visit to the venue itself, and allows remote audiences to explore selected collections, giving them a taste for what the physical museum holds. Benefiting from an engaging and intuitive interface, the site has flexible navigation patterns and clear calls to action.
