Connecticut History

CHNM partnered with the Connecticut Humanities Council (CHC) to design and develop a Wordpress-powered site all about the towns, people, and events of the state. I designed a logo and designed and built out three different themes over the course of the project, as CHC was working with a branding agency for the Council as a whole. Site not yet launched.

Home pages and details for three themes.

mPublishing Wordpress site

CHNM partnered with mPublishing, a division of the University of Michigan library, to design and develop a Wordpress-based website and blog to promote a variety of activities and resources for both digital and print publishing. mPublishing required a contemporary look that both conveyed innovation and referenced some of the traditions of publishing, such as typographic ornamentation and typographic personality. Site not yet launched.

Everyday Americans, Extraordinary Americans

CHNM regularly partners with Loudoun County’s schools to produce websites on various history topics that will be resources for teachers and students. This grant was just funded, after developing initial design concepts. It was critical that the home page design prominently highlight resources, professional development events, and new items.

power of place: Landscapes as historical texts

This website was developed for D.C. public schools history teachers to share resources and lesson plans using the concept of “place” as a focus for teaching local history. Unlike the typical Omeka site, this site’s home page is exclusively photo based. The animated images use only css3 for their effects.

martha washington: a life

Mt. Vernon hired CHNM to develop a website that would bring Martha’s world to life through words and pictures in a way that would appeal to historians and teachers, history buffs, and the general public. The site uses Omeka to allow content providers to add new material, and for visitors to make notes and annotate content. See Case Study for details.

eleanor roosevelt: courage to lead

The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers hired CHNM to develop a website that told the story of Eleanor Roosevelt’s many roles and her enduring legacy. The client wanted a classical look and feel, and home and splash pages that put videos and slideshows front and center. The site has been ported into Omeka, an open-source CMS developed by CHNM, and is awaiting funding for the client to add content.

The home page can be viewed here. However, since this site is in development, there are no live links.

popular romance project

CHNM, teaming with several other external collaborators, is developing a multi-platform project on romance in popular culture, including a website. The goals: a look that combined scholarship and sassiness, that could appeal both to an academic and public audience, and that was sufficiently modular to include many different types of content, integrate with a content management system, and encourage social networking and community.

world history matters

After CHNM redesigned its website, the existing World History Matters portal page was badly in need of a facelift, and a design that would make it easy to add new sites and links.
