Interpretive Design/Educational Touchscreen Games
We created a series of touchscreen interactive games for the Cleveland Metroparks NatureTracks mobile classroom. The games are designed for grade school children to help reinforce lessons that are taught as a part of the NatureTracks onboard programming.
The games focus on several topics including food chains, animal habitats, and adaptations. In addition to designing the games to be easy and fun to play for various age groups of children, we also made sure to design the interface and overall look of the games to integrate with the interior aesthetic of the mobile classroom.
Website Design and Development, CMS + CRM, Print Design
Together, our print and web work creates an integrated and delightful brand experience for the Cleveland Zoological Society. Our vibrant web design and powerful LUCY CMS and integrated CRM allow visitors to support and engage with CZS online. Staff can manage, track and archive their patrons' activities and donations, and member records are seamlessly shared from LUCY to CZS's Raiser's Edge system. Our design of the Society's quarterly magazine, ZMagazine, carries the clean and modern tone from the website into print. We design each issue to carry a consistent structure and color story with visual surprises that keep viewers engaged. Our cohesive web and digital design for CZS has elevated the organization's brand.
"FORM web sites look amazing, and the CMS is very user-friendly for administrators. We now have more repeat visitors to our site, and longer visits. People are coming back often to see what’s new. Plus, the FORM staff, while always being professional, are more like friends than colleagues."
Chatbot, Exhibition Website + CMS
We use new technologies to help the Akron Art Museum engage and educate their audiences in compelling ways.
We created Dot, a Chatbot that runs on mobile devices and takes visitors through a self-guided tour of the museum’s permanent collection. We helped create the content, developed the Chatbot, and produced a kiosk video to help visitors learn to use it.
Our tablet-based With a Trace: Photographs of Absence is an experimental exhibition microsite optimized for use on tablets within the exhibition itself; the site uses the accelerometer on tablets to shift and slide content when the device is tilted.
Website Design and Development, CMS + CRM
We are helping The Contemporary Arts Center promote exhibitions and promgrams, and encourage memberships and donations through a website filled with high imact design, dynamic content, and strategic message placement. Our LUCY CMS makes it simple for the museum to update all their content, sell merchanidise, and create exhibitions with video, slidecasts, podcasts, and catalogs. The site also houses a 70-year archive of the museum’s past exhibitions which automatically self-populates as each exhibition ends.
"We issued an RFP and within a few months, it was clear that FORM had the most experience creating visually compelling, intuitive sites for organizations like ours. FORM gave us more than we could have imagined, on time and within budget, and were the perfect partner to take us to the next level with our brand."
Website Design + Development
We helped elevate SPACES national online presence and engage their patrons with a clean, distinctive website. The bold tone of the design reflects the adventurous energy of the organization and its mission to support artists who experiment. Exhibitions are automatically archived when they pass, and a database of current and past artists provides insight into their work. The site runs on our LUCY CMS, so SPACES staff can easily update content. A membership system and donate page help the organization recruit and retain members.
Interpretive Design/Educational Touchscreen Games
We are helping the National Inventors Hall of Fame educate and enlighten visitors with in situ touchscreen interpretive experiences. The interactives include educational games and quizzes which relate to their permanent exhibitions, a real-time social wall, and email sign-up system.
Campaign Design, Branding and Print, Web Development + CMS
We created a strong brand and cohesive set of digital and print brand elements for the Issue 8 campaign. We designed the identity, digital ads, email marketing, website and social graphics to promote the organizations goal of achieving an arts and culture levy renewal. The website features immersive photos and videos demonstrating the cultural, social and economic impact of the levy. The site also collected donations, provided poll information, and promoted volunteerism. The content was managed through our LUCY CMS.
Website Design, CMS + CRM, Print Design
Our cohesive combination of a bold website, and digital and print annual strategic plan help strengthen the UCI brand and engage its patrons. Designed to encourage out-of-town tourism as well as longer visits from locals, the website features customized, dynamic maps that allow for cross-pollination of related content and organic discovery. The site content is updated through our LUCY CMS. The digital and physical strategic plan helps unify the brand and mission.
"The FORM team was especially adept at listening to us, taking all of the needs and desires we expressed, and turning them into reality. The new UCI website is clean, modern, and visually appealing. Most importantly, it helped us develop a plan to communicate effectively to several different audiences through one well-organized site. We had a fantastic response to it from board members, our institution partners, and the general public."
