Our goal in creating this website for The Contemporary Arts Center was to build an online presence that is at once dynamic, forward thinking and user-friendly. The site automatically pulls social media feeds to keep the content fresh, and encourages sharing, memberships and donations by using strategic design and message placement. Embedded video and related media such as slidecasts, podcasts and catalogs are automatically associated with exhibitions, programs and events. The site houses a 70-year archive of the museum's past exhibitions. All content is manageable through a customized content management system and is completely responsive for a seamless mobile experience.

With a widely varied audience of students, parents, faculty, alumni, donors, media and community, developing a manageable site architecture for CIA was our greatest challenge. On the front end, we aimed to strike a balance between exciting visuals, non-traditional design, and clear information. The site content is driven by a customized content management system that allows for total content control through a visually oriented and easy to use interface.

Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Cleveland Food Bank .org

The Greater Cleveland Food Bank has a vast constituency of donors, volunteers, advocates, and people in need. Our challenge in creating their new website was to devise an information architecture and visual design that's responsive, easy to navigate, and able to accommodate dynamic and deep content. The site navigation was simplified by splitting it into two categories: for those who want to give help, and those who need help. We saved the Food Bank time and money, too, by leveraging their existing content to weave together stories of those in need with an easy option to donate, advocate and volunteer.
