The website was conceived to be visible in one single scroll. It is divided into 9 main steps : an introduction to the exhibition, 7 galleries and a press access. The transition from one screen to another is made with a gradient pattern, evolving to cover with color the previous screen. Each pattern is directly inspired from the Palace Museum iconography.
Each gallery displays the objects in 2 different scales : a general view to get the shape of the object and a close-up to enable the visitor to apprehend the quality of the jewel. The gallery is first displayed “closed”. The design of each gallery is inspired by the window display created by the scenographer. It opens when the visitor clicks on an object.
The colors of the galleries are directly inspired by the Meridian Gate pavilion, and by the actual scenography colors.
