Brief

Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt Museum approached Matcha Labs to migrate their Design with the Other 90% online exhibition websites in to a single WordPress Content Management System. We were also briefed to help improve the user experience of the website on devices such as tablets and mobile devices.

Solution

Key areas of this project included:

  • Responsive web design: building a responsive website that looks great not only on desktop PCs and laptops, but also on tablet and mobile devices
  • Data migration: consolidation of 3 separate Drupal based websites into a single WordPress installation
  • User registration/commenting security: implementation of improvements that reduce the likelihood of fake accounts and spam comments

About the Design with the Other 90% Series

Design with the Other 90% is a series of themed exhibitions that demonstrate how design can be a dynamic force in transforming and, in many cases, saving lives. The first exhibition, in 2007, Design for the Other 90%, focused on design solutions that addressed the most basic needs of the 90% of the world’s population not traditionally served by professional designers.
