Paint By Number Museum wanted to provide a searchable collection of several thousand artworks. They wanted the site to feel like a museum, allowing visitors to browse and search the collection by keyword, manufacturer, catalog, box sets, artist name, and much more.
The client's non-technical users needed to be able to easily upload and maintain the entire collection. Lastly, the client wanted the site to function as a social network for a community of PBN collectors who could log in to the site, upload, and share their artwork in the Museum's collection.
