The Project

The College of Dentistry’s yearly publications needed a compelling online presence, one that would effectively convey new developments, success stories, research, and more, during and after the unique circumstances brought about by COVID.

A micro-site for both publications was built focused around a very basic flexbox wireframe used to present stories and articles in a mosaic-tiled layout. After many iterations, a particular flexbox structure was selected and tiles programmed with CSS to adjust to all kinds of viewports. The result is an easy-to-navigate and elegant user experience aided by desktop and mobile navigation menus.
