Macalester College, July 2011
Macademia is a website that visualizes the connections between academic researchers and the topics they study.
- Visualization design
- Site design and layout
- HTML and CSS
I redesigned the Macademia research site to make it more approachable and easier to use. Macademia is a research project that helps academics find possible collaborators. The site allows you to search for topics or people and creates a visualization that shows how other academics connect to the various topics.
I created a new home page for the site to provide a more search-centric approach to the site. I also provided a series of alternative visualizations to consider and improved the legibility of the existing visualizations. I defined a new visual style for the site and gave CSS and markup improvements to the research team to implement.
