In 2014 we were approached by the Digital + Media department at RISD to design an experimental and playful website that could encapsulate the energy of the department. The site was conceived as a window into the department’s current activities by students and visiting artists and lecturers, and acts as a kind of ‘dashboard’ of up-to-date goings-on. In this way, the site is a place for current students to see and participate in the activities; prospective students get a view into the atmosphere of the department, rather than the standard how-to-apply information of a departmental website. The site is a living archive of the activities and work, with sections for lectures, exhibitions, news, student and alumni pages and coursework pages.
The site is built as one centralized page, with each section opening a new window that dives deeper into more detail, rather than navigating to different pages. The ‘explode’ button opens all everything to get a full-picture and in-depth look at the Digital + Media universe. Multi-media functioning is supported, with lecture videos embedded into the site. The dashboards date and time bar supports the concept of the most recent look into the state of the department.
This is our work is a graphic design studio run by Megan Feehan and collaborators. Our work includes visual identities, publications, exhibitions, print collateral and interactive projects for architecture, art and miscellaneous institutions. We specialize in being design generalists, in not fetishizing technology over communication, and letting experiment and play guide form and format decisions.
Our design process incorporates research, analysis, and genuine curiosity to determine the best outcome with the most impact, whatever the format. Our aim for every project is to produce memorable, meaningful and intuitive communication design. We love the full spectrum of the process — embracing grand concepts and granular production specifications equally.
Our clients include the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, Rhode Island School of Design, New Museum for Contemporary Art, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Brown University, David Brooks Studio, Post-Office Architectes, On Stellar Rays Gallery, and Lauren Wegel Architect, amongst others. The studio was founded in New York City in 2013, and is based in lower Manhattan.
