The website set to sell Scotland’s first museum of design to the globe will be built by a Dutch company behind some of the world’s most visited web pages.
Your Majesty, which has offices in Amsterdam, New York and London, has secured the contract to produce the website for the V&A Dundee following a busy tender process.
The company currently boasts a client list including the likes of Netflix, Airbnb, Adidas, Spotify and BMW.
They beat off 11 other online companies in their successful bid.
It is not known if any local technology companies bid for the work. V&A chiefs say data privacy laws mean details of the other bidders cannot be disclosed.
EU rules permit companies from outside the UK to bid for projects for public bodies, allowing the Dutch team to enter its successful bid and more than 100 notes of interest were placed from firms across Europe.
The site will launch as the opening date for the multi-million-pound Waterfront attraction draws closer.
The museum is to open to the public on September 15 and is expected to attract as many as 500,000 extra visitors to the city in its first 12 months.
The cost of the project will total £80,000 and V&A bosses hope the design of the site will be a key element of the visitor journey and a “fundamental” part of how they will communicate with their audiences.
It will sit alongside the existing V&A website, used by the London museum to advertise exhibits, collections and special events.
A V&A Dundee spokesperson said: “Contracts worth more than £50,000 go through a regulated procurement process which is open to companies in Scotland and beyond. We received over 100 notes of interest for this tender.
“We are delighted to be working with developers Your Majesty, the company that best met the criteria for our launch website.”
