As part of their suite of centennial materials, we designed an expanded online version of the Maison Française’s gallery exhibition. The site offers rich, immersive content about the organization’s history. A media and archives section provides a living repository of the Maison’s photographs, documents, audio and video recordings. There are also two special features: a Centennial Highlights section and a selection of pages from former director Eugene Sheffer’s photo album.
The site’s design offers multiple access points to the many layers of content through a clean, user-friendly interface. You can choose to skim through the narrative on a cursory level, delve further into the online exhibition, or lose yourself in the minutiae of the archives.
By clicking a link at top, the entire site toggles to a full version in French.
Communication Arts Online featured the site as both their Webpick of the Week and of the Month.
