Concept graphic to replace an icon font that we currently use as our default icon for collections. I’ve used the most commonly deposited file types (text, photo, spreadsheets, zip files, databases, and movies) as my inspiration for the new collection icon.
Home page graphic concept for ScholarSphere with marketing text, call-to-action button, and collage assembled with research images from the repositories. We asked each researcher if we could use their images for a collage on the home page.

The University Bulletin, which is comprised of the Bluebook and the Whitebook, is the official bulletin of The Pennsylvania State University. The Bluebook is the Undergraduate Degree Programs Bulletin and the Whitebook is the Graduate Degree Programs Bulletin. Penn State is no longer printing paper copies of the University Bulletin and this Web site serves as the up-to-date resource for course information and degree programs. The front-end uses XHTML templates and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and the back-end is Adobe ColdFusion. My role concentrated solely on the front-end and a fellow team member entirely created the back-end functionality.
Cynthia Nixon is a contemporary American artist whose mixed-media work combines figurative painting, gold leaf and embroidery. She was looking for an easy-to-use Web site that focused on her work and allowed individuals to explore her mixed media work and find out more about her.

The site is developed with straight forward XHTML and CSS.
