The Challenge

The existing website was originally designed in 1996 to provide access to the works and images of William Blake. The Archive provides scholars and the general public access to high quality color corrected images of Blake’s art as well as the text of Blake’s works, commentary, and research tools.

It was designed for scholars who want to study Blake as a professionally edited site, not to make Blake accessible to the lay user and amateur scholar. The Archive wanted to maintain this prestigious status, but also present a more contemporary, and user-friendly images to non-scholars.

The Solution

We created a slick, uncluttered interface to make all of the image information readily available. We then streamlined the navigation across the archive. To create this desired user interface, we engaged in several stages of web design: Wireframes, Design Concepts, and HTML/JS/CSS build out. The new site has a modern, easy to use interface, which brings forward the well crafted artwork William Blake had created.

Case Study Intro: 

The Labor Education and Research Project (popularly referred to as Labor Notes) serves as the voice of union activists in the labor movement. Since 1979, Labor Notes has promoted grassroots organization to empower union workers in transforming the labor system.

Through an online store, the organization offers magazine subscriptions, handbooks, and registration for conferences and workshops.

Previously, order information was manually entered into the organization's Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database. Besides creating significant overhead for Labor Notes staff, human error often caused duplicate customer entries.

Labor Notes wanted to reduce the amount of manual data entry and duplicate customer accounts, and to automate as much order fulfillment as possible.

We created an automated workflow to export customer information from the order form into Salesforce, a powerful online CRM tool used by thousands of companies and organizations. The end result is a simplified business process for managing subscribers and contacts.

We have database/ecommerce integration we could have only dreamed up. Our business manager can spend far more of her time filling orders and working with customers, rather than churning through piles of data-entry.

About The Project

As part of its re-branding process, Research Triangle Institute changed its name to RTI International and adopted a new logo, striving to be recognized as the premier independent research institute in the world. A new web site design by DesignHammer, deployed in June 2002, was part of the re-branding process.

In 2007 RTI International asked DesignHammer to redesign their new site. With great pride the new site went live August 2008. The new design conveys the message “RTI is the world’s best resource for turning knowledge into practice through innovative, multidisciplinary research and technology development.” The site serves a diverse audience identified as clients/collaborators, policymakers, researchers, current and potential customer, potential investors, potential employees, news media and the general public.

The new site has been very well received and achieved the look and feel and functional requirements that we desired.
