Case study

I had the pleasure of working with the MA Design Research (née D-Crit) program at the School of Visual Arts on several projects over the years, including the main site post-transition and several iterations of microsites for their annual conference and Summer Intensive program.

The main site was designed in literal fly-across-the-country close collaboration with then-director Alice Twemlow alongside the new name and identity for the program and featured an all-new structure that forefronted research projects from current students and alumni, giving both the students’ works and ideas exposure, and helping give meaning to the nature and curriculum of the program to prospective students. This was paired with a generative grid of other information from the archive, bright colors, and irreverent illustrations.
