Hull 2017 is everywhere. Every newspaper, arts publication and culture blog has covered the project and the unique programme of events just keeps on giving.
As millions of visitors descend upon the city to experience 365 days of culture, it would be easy for the project’s organisers to devote their sole attention to delivering an amazing year of events. Despite this, the question of legacy beyond 2017 has remained central to the Hull City of Culture strategy.
From the inception of the bid, the Hull team acknowledged digital needed to be at the heart of their proposal if they were to deliver an experience that truly leaves a legacy for Hull and it’s people.
The centrality of digital in their vision was one of the reasons we were so excited to be appointed to design and develop the official Hull 2017 digital platform.
