A digital strategy for The Hold

An archives service for the 21st century

Client: Suffolk Record Office

What we did: Workshops, Concept development, Digital development

The Hold is an archives service for the 21st century in Ipswich (Suffolk, UK), expected to open in 2019. As part of their overall strategy development and in preparation for a Heritage Lottery Fund application, VISSCH+STAM worked with the team of The Hold to develop a digital strategy. The digital strategy supports The Hold in building better communities and individual identities.

To develop the digital strategy, we worked closely with the client, stakeholders, and future users of the archives service. In a number of workshops, we identified all existing ideas, expectations, possibilities, and hopes for the future institution, and applying our expertise and best practices we developed an actionable digital strategy with clear objectives.
