RISD Global

Posted on: January 2nd, 2015 by akiley No Comments

We designed and developed, with developer Ruben Rodriguez, a comprehensive new web presence for RISD Global Partners and Programs, an office that facilitates study abroad and exchange programs at the school. Our website reflects the organization’s expansion and rebranding as an ambitiously-conceived ‘hub’ for global art education, and implements and extends it’s new visual identity, designed by Project Projects, on the web.

The website is built around a feed of user-contributed ‘field notes,’ accounts of global learning experiences by student and faculty ambassadors that personalize and dramatize the work of the office. A moving sequence of images and excerpts on the site’s homepage is linked together by whimsical arrow animations that playfully extend a motif of the organization’s visual identity into the realm of the dynamic. The site also features a dynamic news feed, integration with social media, and a multi-tiered menu interface streamlining access to extensive content.







RISD GD Triennial

Posted on: December 17th, 2014 by akiley No Comments

We co-curated and art-directed the RISD Graphic Design Triennial, a survey exhibition of graduate and undergraduate student work, in 2012. Our concept revolved around a one paragraph definition of graphic design, that acted as both a visual identity and as a ‘tag cloud’ of organizing concepts for the exhibition.
