  • Audio and video players
  • Image comparers
  • Full page galleries
  • Slideshows
  • Image explorers
  • On-screen keyboard

How easy is Darwin to use?

Very! If you can use PowerpointTM or KeynoteTM then Darwin will be pretty straightforward. Create pages and popups, add content and links between them – from a simple interactive to a complicated iPad tour, it’s all possible with Darwin.

How does it all work?

Creating your digital exhibits with Darwin is a simple, repeatable process.

Create and edit

Design, prototype and build your new digital exhibit or app using Darwin Creator, which runs on PC or Mac.

If you can build a slideshow, you can use Darwin.

Export and upload

Export your exhibit to a USB key, ready to install on your in-gallery computer – or upload to our temporary online storage

Install and run

Copy your exhibit to a public-facing Mac, PC or download to an iOS device running the Darwin Player app. It’s quick and easy – then you set Darwin to auto-play and reveal it to the public!

Us or you?

If you are short on time, we can build the exhibits for you for a low cost. Most typically we would start creating your exhibit, get the basic design and structure in place, then hand over to you, to complete and then extend and enhance over time.  But if you have the time available, you can save more money by building the exhibit yourself.

In any case, with your licence/subscription we provide training and support – and it’s lots of fun. Really!

With Darwin we have created a wide range of digital tours and exhibits.  It is at the heart of our digital offering.
