Custom Museum Website Design
Increase Engagement and Connect with Visitors, Donors & Volunteers
We design museum websites that can handle the needs of growing organizations.
You want to draw more visitors and be the authority on your subject matter. You have events to promote and info to share. Your website should be the marketing hub for your organization, but if it’s providing a frustrating experience for you and your visitors, it could be costing you growth.
We evaluate your unique needs and goals to design a website that meets your needs today, and has room to grow with you. You’ll be able to stop fighting with your website so you can focus on your goals, and your visitors will thank you.
"The team at Landslide Creative was an absolute pleasure to work with. Their dedication to our project was above and beyond their call of duty and the new website was absolutely pristine at the time of launch. They were the only organization to take the time to visit our location, demonstrating a deep commitment to their customers as more than just a dollar amount. It was a personal touch that you don’t see much anymore."

We break our website pricing into two distinct parts:
The strategic planning phase comes first and includes an in-person or virtual LaunchPlan strategy session. During this session, we get into the details of your big-picture objectives and technical requirements and brainstorm any additional features or functionality you would like to see. This ensures we have an accurate picture of what you need and want in your website, and allows us to develop a comprehensive plan for execution.
After the strategic plan is completed and approved, we put together a detailed statement of work (SOW) for the design and development phase and provide a final price based on executing it as specified.
If you have a specific budget, we can typically work with you to create a plan to maximize your value.
