Statuephilla was a special British Museum event where 5 well known artists including Antony Gormley and Damien Hirst placed a piece of their work in a British Museum gallery.  This was kept secret from the media until the press show.  Due to the special nature of the event the web team had to design and develop a distinct look and feel to the Statuephillia section of the website to highlight the uniqueness of this event.

Due to this, we were not able to make use of the website grid or common design patterns.  This led to a significantly larger amount of development work but with no extra time as the section needed to be live for the press release.  The technical members of the web team also had to take, edit and upload 5 videos for this date also.

The website and videos were finished on time and the event made worldwide headlines.
