It has been a busy month for everyone at AWP and for our clients too!
Our approach to brand communication and design relies upon close partnership with our clients. Working together, we’ve implemented some awesome designs on new websites that have strengthened our clients’ brands with new looks and new content. These two sites enable educators across the country to coordinate nation-wide programs that are shifting how students learn in two highly divergent areas that are essential to their long-term success – bioenergy and bioproducts education and news literacy.
Bioenergy & Bioproducts Education Programs (BBEP)
BBEP (pictured above) provides professional development for US educators in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and Agriculture. These educators influence thousands of students annually both in their own classrooms and by training other teachers in their schools. They inspire student interest in STEM-related and Agriculture-related courses and career paths by leveraging their skills and enthusiasm while employing a suite of hands-on teaching tools, laboratory experiments, and classroom activities developed by BBEP team members.
Our design combines a handmade/analog aesthetic with practical interface conventions, and scales down responsively to tablets and smartphones. Check it out at bioenergyed.org
The News Literacy Project
The News Literacy Project was founded in early 2008 by Alan C. Miller, then an investigative reporter with the Los Angeles Times. It is an innovative national educational program that mobilizes seasoned journalists to work with educators to teach middle school and high school students how to sort fact from fiction in the digital age.
The design was influenced by the existing NLP logo. Like BBEP, the site scales down well for a streamlined NLP experience. We developed it on Drupal which enables NLP staff members to edit content quickly and efficiently. It is live at thenewsliteracyproject.org
