SITUATION

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Kennedy Institute is a hub of civic engagement and programming, centered around its physical exhibits and mock-Senate facility in Boston.

Launching an exciting new Art exhibit around empowerment honoring Shirley Chisholm, the Institute developed an innovative idea: use the web to expand the physical exhibit beyond its original artists, empowering the community to contribute their own art and their own stories.

SOLUTION

FULL DESIGN JOURNEY

Digital Mark understood that the Institute was looking to capture boldness in design and civil engagement in function. We needed something fresh, so simply repurposing existing swatches and layouts wouldn’t work.

Because of our focus on custom and original artwork, the Institute benefitted from a comprehensive design solution. It included Brand Story, User Research, Wireframes, and interactive Mockups, and most importantly, a true collaboration between our design team and the Institute stakeholders.

OUTCOME

DEVELOPMENT

We developed BringYourOwnChair.org to help showcase and grow the Institutes’ A Seat at the Table exhibit. The site is supported by a backend workflow developed by Digital Mark, which allows the exhibit to grow without taxing their team with manual tasks.

The Institute benefited from deep design and planning engagement, without having to hire multiple firms to get the website from idea to launch.
