Web Design, 2016
The Children's Museum of Manhattan, founded in 1973, serves more than 350,000 people, including 65,000 children visiting on school groups or through one of the Museum's community partners. With outreach programs at nearly 50 sites around New York city, CMOM's exhibits and programs are easily accessible to all.
CMOM has partnered up with Dressler in a website redesign. A main issue fixed includes the ambiguous functionality of the current site; making users unclear of navigation throughout the pages. An initial request from client covered the desire for a clean, modern feel with simplified elements and large bodies of positive space. The site needs to be fun and easily navigated for both parent and children.
Below is an initial draft and variation of the redesign. The project is currently in production, and the new website will be live shortly.
My approach to style for this new website consisted of a clearly color coded navigation bar. Being a children's museum, I felt necessary to select a primary and secondary color scheme. Each section of the site, and all that features on that section is colored one specific color helping navigation become easily understandable.
