Strategy, Information Architecture, Design and User experience

Artist Damien Hirst commissioned Bureau to design and build the online website and archive. The site features truly mesmerising live video from his workshops which allows the user to watch the creation of the artworks in real-time. Furthermore the website enables high-resolution zoom into some to the artist's most important works.


The website for one of the UK's leading arts organisations was commissioned to offer an interface for this highly dynamic organisation, whilst bringing to life their vast and varied archive material of artists such as Rachel Whiteread, Roger Hiorns and Michael Landy.

Art listings site / social network

ArtRabbit is a self-initiated site built by Bureau. The site allows galleries and users to upload their art events, producing the most complete and widely used art event repository.

The site is now independently run by former BfVA director Tom Elsner.

Strategy, Information Architecture, Design and User experience

London-based production agency Art Events commissioned artist Simon English to revisit 75 points first encountered in the making of his monumental All England Sculpture in 1971. Bureau used high fidelity GPS tracking devices to chart and document the artist's repeat journey in 2012.
