THE STONE CENTER FOR LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
The Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University had a problem. They were a growing and expansive institute with reach and partnerships all over the Americas but no one could tell that from their web presence. The challenge we were posed with in 2008 by the Stone Center was how to document and connect different academic departments, schools and international programs and not wind up with a site that is difficult to use and disjointed.
Over two months, we planned a site information architecture schema that would allow for the easy publishing and cross linking of all content types and student and professional profiles. What we would up with was a site that shows off the expansiveness of the Stone Center’s reach while being easy to navigate by the end user. The site has now become the platform for two other, related Tulane University departments.
“...lots of inquiries around Tulane as to who did our new site... we are extremely proud of it.”Valerie Marshall / Director, Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Tulane University
