Case study

Future of Libraries

Client: MIT Libraries

Services: visual design, design development

The Director of Libraries, Chris Bourg, needed a new site to announce the creation of a Task Force on how the MIT Libraries ought to evolve and provide leadership in the reinvention of research libraries.

I was asked to create a site based loosely on the existing MIT Libraries website but appear as a distinct entity from it. Using my “DLC Theme,” I designed and built the pages in static html with content and images supplied by the Libraries.

Once approved, my html, css, and javascript was handed over to the News Office's brilliant in-house developer, Lin Lee, to bring the site into Drupal and launch it.

The entire site was live within two weeks of the initial client meeting.
