RENSSELAER FIRSTS

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is the oldest engineering school in America, and to celebrate their upcoming bicentennial, I worked with developers to create an innovative and imaginative site. We wanted to highlight the technological advancements the school has spearheaded that have influenced the world as we know it. With a universe of 20 decades, each idealized by illustrated diagrams from events within those years, the user is taken through an extensive look at the school's achievements. 

I worked 1:1 with a developer to flesh out the UI and UX for the start, starting from static mockups to consider the userflow. From there, we worked with the archivists at RPI to create unique graphics with historical imagery pulled from their libraries. I created the white-line "blue-prints" by hand, to create a connection with the engineering backbone of the school.
