MEERC Website & Brochures

MEERC Website & Brochures Multiple Disciplines, One Name The Midwest Energy Efficiency Research Consortium research centers are active in multiple areas of technology and a growing number of areas of application of energy efficiency. The University of Missouri challenged us to create a cohesive look that would allow each discipline to stand out while still keeping in touch with university brand standards and keeping everything under one umbrella. The final approach utilizes various hues of color that contrast with MU black and gold to distinguish between each discipline. A toned-down version of gold is used as a neutral background color while the more traditional gold and black bring splashes of color to buttons and other calls to action. The website is built on the WordPress platform, allowing multiple administrators to update the site and post blog-like content in the form of articles, resources or projects. The brochures and flyers for each discipline feature supportive imagery and colors to increase brand awareness and association of color while simultaneously maintaining affiliation with the university through use of color, font and a grid layout.  This project was completed during my time at MayeCreate Design under art direction from Monica Pitts.   Put Your Print to Work Tell your story and inform potential customers or donors how they can make an impact.

Global First Responder’s Flash

Global First Responder’s Flash

Global First Responder Website Design & Flash Animation The Challenge Navigating the world is hard enough when you have GPS, constellations and other tracking systems. On the web though, all you have is your screen and mouse (or touch pad or finger, etc.). So finding a solution for navigating the world online was the biggest challenge for GlobalFirstResponder.com. The Solution Since we can’t navigate the three dimensional world with a pop-up hologram, a map with the ability to zoom in and navigate between regions seemed like the next best thing. The entire system was developed in Adobe Flash. Pop-up labels and hover effects grab viewers and add to the user experience. Users are able to click on a region to zoom-in and see the countries within. A navigation tab expands to display all regions so users don’t have to zoom-out to the world-view to navigate to another region. Labels pop-up to display the names of regions and countries. When a user clicks on an individual country, a lightbox opens to display specific information. Viewers can find information about the government (or lack-of) in power, see stories from fellow responders who have visited, view images from the field and other helpful tools to help inform them about traveling there. This project was completed during my time at MayeCreate Design. The website has since been updated, but still features the flash navigation created under art direction from Monica Pitts.  Navigate the World Click a through the regions in need and countries inside them.
