Our Work

Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University

Homepage: Advancing scholarship in all fields of China Studies

We helped Fairbank to redesign and rebuild their old WordPress site to put more focus on their people and events while preserving accessibility. 

Social Innovation + Change Initiative at Harvard

SICI, at The Harvard Kennedy School Center for Public Leadership, wanted a fresh, unique new WordPress site with a design that would be distinctive in the social innovation space. SICI, DevCollab, and Pentagram collaborated to create a new information architecture, and bring their new messaging and aesthetics to life, prioritizing web accessibility throughout the project.

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art

The Carle Museum needed a mobile-friendly, modern site that better matches the unique experience of visiting the museum itself. DevCollab worked with the Carle team and Theory One Design to make a user-friendly site while putting the museum's wonderful art and distinctive aesthetic front-and-center. 

Rockefeller Brothers Fund

In concert with a major Drupal upgrade, RBF needed to freshen up their website to match their updated visual brand. In their rebuild, we focused on streamlining their navigation while prioritizing accessibility. We designed a new homepage to highlight their programs and newly-renovated performing arts center. We also integrated their site with the GivingData Grants Management System API, to enable easy publication of grant and grantee information. 

Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies

The Harvard University Davis Center has an invaluable archive of beautiful images, along with cutting-edge scholarship on the Russian and Eurasian regions, but it had an outdated, fixed-width site. We partnered with Davis to build a new Drupal 8 site with a modern, mobile-friendly design, and created flexible components for their "Insight" content type to show off their rich content and imagery.

The Journalist's Resource

The Journalist's Resource was ready to publish more frequently and develop new types of articles, and they wanted an updated look for their site and brand.  DevCollab led the JR editorial team through workshops to develop simpler navigation, worked with Kayla Jones to create an updated brand and logo, and built out the new brand into a complete web design in a fresh WordPress site.

The Media Manipulation Casebook

"The Media Manipulation Casebook is a digital research platform linking together theory, methods, and practice for mapping media manipulation and disinformation campaigns"

We partnered with the Harvard Kennedy Shorenstein Center TaSC team to create this Drupal 8 website, a searchable database of their unique research on detecting, documenting, and debunking media manipulation and disinformation campaigns. 

Essential Partners

Essential Partners initially had funding to rebuild one section of their website. Their visual brand elements were strong, but they wanted to update and modernize their overall design. Our team worked with them to produce a modern web design in line with their existing brand, and relaunched their new site section in Drupal 8. Later, we moved the rest of their site into Drupal 8, extending the design to all of their content.
