As part of its internship program, Hanley Wood tasked interns to produce its Foundation Series, interviewing company leadership about their editorial strategies and ideas. I produced and edited one of the feature’s videos, about editorial director Bill Palmer, then designed and developed the series website, compiling all its features into an elegant, responsive reading experience.
The website I designed for HWFS is all about Hanley Wood’s people. The goal was to go beyond ordinary profiles, and thoughtfully integrate material from editors’ work, in both video and text. Meaningful photography, compelling display and text typography, and carefully-considered pull quotes augment the reading experience; footers are furnished with personalized links and actions for social media. This work taught me how to design profiles that directly incorporate the subject’s work, and of the numerous steps of managing multimedia editorial projects.
