I was asked to design and develop two responsive sites as part of a network of websites for the graduate Media Design Practices department at Art Center College of Design. In the Fall of 2012 the program was launching two new tracks, Field + Lab.
Field focuses on infrastructure and social innovation, while Lab focuses on technology and culture. Both do so through the lens of design practice and exploring emerging contexts for designers.
I was responding to creative direction developed by department chair Anne Burdick and deployed by LUST and Cargo Collective on the other network sites. The posts from both sites gets drawn into feeds on the main department site.
The Field site syndicates most of its content from student Tumblr blogs, serving as a kind of real-time ethnography. The Lab site features more editorial style posts from studio driven research.
