Select Examples and Methodology
Rebecca Hargrave Malamud is one of the earliest practicing web designers on the Internet, publishing her first website for a client in 1991. Designers from that era gain insight into elegant and functional design solutions that work over unnecessarily complex architectures. She has experience on many large-scale web projects, building components or directing creative, as well as creating complete websites.
Below is a very short list of recent and relevant projects. See Projects for more best practices and work in progress.
A World’s Fair For The Information Age
The 1996 World’s Fair was a major undertaking which involved book design, print collateral, a web site and CD rom. It has the distinction of being one of the earliest websites on the Internet that indeed still works! — https://www.404pagefound.com/2009/05/31/internet-1996-world-exposition/ 😃 (Complete project page coming soon)
Soulpie.TV was created in 2018 and was a perfectly executed example of brand identity across web and print media (it even won an award — http://memory.org/soulpie-winner.png!). Unfortunately, the band broke up shortly thereafter. Fortunately, you can still see the video section of this website at — http://soulpie.tv/videos
Rural Design Collective
The Rural Design Collective is a mentoring program sponsored and organized by Point.B Studio. Currently, it is in hiatus, however we have hopes to start it again someday as time, funds and tenacity permit. 😃 You can read more at https://sixes.net/allnewrdcHQ/rdc-rnd-lab.htm. Also, here is one of our favorite photos of the Cobwebs Crew just because — https://sixes.net/allnewrdcHQ/assets/IMG_9201.sm.png ❤
New Artists Productions
New Artists Productions is our favorite youth theater group ever. We were quite fortunate to build their website during our mentoring program. You can watch a video about that here: https://vimeo.com/392373395.
The New Artists Productions Website was created during The Rural Design Collective Summer Mentoring Program. Above is a prototype built in GIMP designed by participants in the program. The project page is at https://sixes.net/allnewrdcHQ/new_artists.htm and you can see the resulting site at http://newartistsproductions.org
Melkite Eparchy of Newton
The Melkite Eparchy of Newton contracted Point.B Studio to create the graphical interface for this iOS app as a visual complement to their website, also designed by Point.B Studio. The website project encompassed a wide range of publishing solutions, including designing a cohesive identity for all print materials and automating publishing processes using tools such as PrinceXML. The iOS app was developed in a virtual setting in Xcode and distributed OTA. See the website component of this project at http://melkite.org
