Harvard

Contracted under: Happy Cog Client: Harvard Business School
Services provided:

The Harvard Business School’s Masters of Business Administration program is one of the elite business educational experiences in the world. The previous site was a bit outdated and I was awarded the wonderful opportunity to contract as an Information Architect to work under the talented folks at Happy Cog to help update the site to an experience caliber that matches the exclusiveness of Harvard.

Problem

The Harvard Business School has multiple programs with very rich content for current and most importantly, potential students. Each one of these programs had their own look and feel to them, creating a disjointed experience when navigation various programs one student may want to learn about.

Objective & Action

Happy Cog’s Kevin Hoffman, Michael Johnson and myself worked to create a consistent page hierarchy, navigation structure and visual aesthetics to be used on the MBA program website.

Results

After discussions with the visual designer from Happy Cog, Michael Johnson, he created a visual system that helped communicate the information architecture and interaction design direction. Below is examples of a combination of my work as the IA and his work on the live site.
