COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES

SPLASH EXPERIENCE

Because of the artistic nature of the Seattle Pacific Art Center, University Communications deemed it neccesary to create a colorful, orignal landing page to help identify the art center as a place of visual learning.

Adam created mockups for this experience, and they are currently being implemented now.

HOME EXPERIENCE

The Seattle Pacific Art Center web experience was in need of a redesign. Adam was tasked with building a new one that would better protray a visual department.

OFF THE GRID 2020

ABOUT

OFF THE GRID is the senior show for the 2020 Visual Communications graduating class. Adam led the web team to create the digital experience for the show.

OFF THE GRID was named to reference the fact the show took place online as a result of Covid-19.

HOMEPAGE

The OFF THE GRID homepage is simple and concise. Student names are revealed when a cursor is hovered over each portrait.

STUDENT PROFILES

Each student profile for OFF THE GRID is designed to be easy to skim. The purpose of having simple pages was to encourage potential employers or viewers to continue on to each studen’ts personal portfolio site.

CONCLUSION 

Working in University Communications has been incredibly rewarding for Adam. The opportunitesi to work with different departments with very different needs has shaped Adam’s workflow to be more efficient and strategic.
