I was brought on by Camp Pacific in Vancouver, BC as Design Lead and Art Director for the re-imagining of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights’ website. CMHR is the world’s first museum dedicated to human rights – inspiring change, preserving and promoting heritage, and providing research, education and thought-provoking entertainment. This large scale project was months in the making, with focus on how to not only engage audiences to visit the powerful museum site in Winnipeg, MB, but also on providing that same in depth storytelling experience to their online audience. CMHR’s mandate is one of understanding and inclusivity. That meant that their website had to meet or exceed AA accessibility standards with the ability to engage all of it’s viewers and visitors in respectful dialogue. The museum needed a highly flexible design system that would allow them to create, organize and archive 100s of pages of human rights stories, events, exhibits and artifacts. The CMHR site offers users the opportunity for higher learning about the museum, the breathtaking architecture and all of the important human rights stories carried within.
