The consultancy has been contracted to provide design services for the £2m project, including 2D and 3D design, audio-visual design, interactive design and Web design for the development of the gallery.
The new permanent gallery will be situated within the existing space of the museum, taking up part of the foyer and some of the area where the Games Lounge is currently placed.
Curator of new media Tom Woolley says, ‘It is incredibly exciting for the National Media Museum to be looking at this important and contemporary subject matter.
‘As well as giving the definitive history of the Internet, the Internet gallery will also include regularly changing displays to reflect the constantly evolving nature of new media.’
The gallery is due to be launched in 2012, and an online resource will accompany the physical space.
