Rural Minnesota Life

RML.jpg

As a part of the decommissioning the FileNET Web Content Management, all of the Family Social Science projects and centers needed to be redesigned. My goal for Rural Minnesota Life's site was to create easy navigation for users.

Parenting Teens

As a part of the decommissioning the FileNET Web Content Management, all of the Family Social Science projects and centers needed to be redesigned. My goal for Parenting Teen's site was an upbeat look into the complicated lives of teens.

FSoS

Due to the Office of Information Technology decommissioning the FileNET Web Content Management, Family Social Science needed to convert their existing sites. We took that opportunity to give the Family Social Science website a new look, experience, and to heighten a sense of discovery for visitors. Major shifts included adding news items to the home page, creating and reusing video clips of faculty and students, and actively updating the news and calendar. Since the majority of our graduate students are international and do not have an opportunity to visit the department before enrolling, I wanted the site to be a strong and effective recruiting tool.

WCFCC

On August 21, 2007 Dr. Wayne Caron suddenly passed away. He left many gifts from his life to grow and thrive in his absence. One of those gifts was the innovative collaborative learning community for persons living with dementia. The Wayne Caron Family Caregiving Center is used by families in need of information regarding dementia care and to improve support for people who live every day with dementia.

Interactions

Since the Family Social Science department had an abundance of news, I suggested the newsletter change from a semiannual to a quarterly newsletter. I write and edit the articles, take the photos, and design the layout.

After languishing for two years, the Family Social Science newsletter needed a new look that incorporates the FSoS logo yet implies transition.

BKV Group

While working at BKV Group, I worked with a team of three architects and a web design consulting firm to reposition this architecture and engineering firm into a “design� firm, communicating attention to details and quality of design with images and minimal text.

Family Social Science word mark

Wayne Caron Family Caregiving Center word mark

After the untimely passing of Wayne Caron in 2007, the Family Caregiving Center that he founded was renamed “Wayne Caron Family Caregiving Center.� The center asked for a word mark that integrated the founder and his mission.

Multi Cultural Conversations

MC2logo.jpg

This logo was designed for an informal, yet purposeful dialogue among all Family Social Science students, staff, and faculty about topics of culture and diversity.

MC2 involves showing films or reading articles or books and having follow-up discussions, or it might involve discussion of a current events, such as the post-election violence in Kenya or the immigration raids in rural Minnesota. The desired outcome is to create a multi-cultural community that values and demonstrates our commitment to inclusiveness and social justice.
