The most comprehensive collection of paint-by-number paintings, kits, and catalogs anywhere in existence. Curators manage over 13,000 pieces in the collection, with new ones being added daily.
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.

When we first met we described what we needed the site to do at very high level. Andy listened to our ideas and produced a truly phenomenal website that not only looks great but gives us the flexibility to expand as our collection grows. Our team of archivists, curators, and photographers find the content management system very easy to use. Our visitors continue to express how impressed they are with our new image and how easy it is to find the paintings they are searching for.
