With accessibility work completed ahead of target, the brief was extended. Building on the work that the Barbican team had already done, the team had a need for granular control over the user experience such as forms and on screen messages in the account section that the current embedded approach did not allow them.
Using vue.js, we connected the Account section through the Spektrix API that handles membership, event ticket and merchandise sales. This included sending and receiving data to Spektrix platform, performing operations and building forms for users to manage their accounts, including an address look up form.
During much of our time working with the Barbican, the centre was closed due to government restrictions to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. It was a privilege to support the Barbican at such a critical time and enabling their development team to focus their time on live streaming events from the centre, such as Professor Brian Cox and video archive offering.
