Map Art for book on Jewish Life in Soviet Ukraine

Map Art for book on Ukraine

The first series of these maps was produced in color, but as the primary purpose was for a book on Jewish Life in Soviet Ukraine, it was decided that they needed to be clear and legible using only shades of gray. The series of maps was drawn using several source maps – some with hand-drawn reference points.

Home page of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction

We rebuilt and redesigned the Kinsey home page to provide clear and easy access to the content, making it easy to update in the process. We worked with the communications director and web committee to be sure that the home page created the right expression of what the Kinsey Institute is all about. Completed in 2008.
