WebExhibits, 'Drafts' Exhibit

Launched in 1999, WebExhibits was one of the first online museums, and now receives over eight million visitors each year. The web site presents interactive exhibits covering science, technology, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and culture. Part of the WebExhibits online museum, the new 'Drafts' exhibit provides insight into the creative processes leading to exceptional works. The provided designs construct the metaphor of a creative person's desk and are adapted for delivery both on the web and as an Apple iPad app.

WebExhibits Main Site Redesign

Launched in 1999, WebExhibits was one of the first online museums, and now receives over eight million visitors each year. The web site presents interactive exhibits covering science, technology, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and culture. There were two progressive redesigns over a couple of years. The first redesign addressed the dated look of the previous site. The solution included a compelling new index and auxiliary pages for the main site as well as updated designs for the subordinate exhibit sites. The new index design relied on a central interactive object and used iconic photo elements to provide brief descriptions and access to exhibit sites. A second redesign made the site fully available on emerging Apple iOS devices by replacing the main Flash object with HTML and CSS content. The site was also given a fresh new look that remains consistent with the museum theme.

WebExhibits Interactive Exhibits

Launched in 1999, WebExhibits is one of the first online museums, and now receives over eight million visitors each year. The museum hosts multiple interactive exhibits covering science, technology, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and culture. As part of a general redesign of the online museum, the exhibit subsites received refreshed designs that retained the distinct themes of the originals. The subsites are recognizable as parts of the WebExhibits museum through the shared general layout, similar structure and consistent fonts.
