I was given the opportunity to create the landing page for the 2015 MICA Graphic Design MFA cohort. The goal that I set out to achieve with this year’s website was two fold:
1. Stay in line with the minimalism of the previous year’s designs, as well as the focus on featuring the designers rather than just the projects.
2. Somehow also include a additional components such as project imagery, longer descriptions, and links to the designers portfolios.
Working with classmate Lolo Zhang
to capture headshots for each designer, I asked each student to provide a accent color—generally a color important to their thesis project—which would be used as a background for their headshots as well link color on their overlays.
Lastly, I created a short promotional video to promote the website and our work through the various social media outlets we use such as Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr.
