NBMAA Internship

Rack CardAs an intern at the New Britain Museum of American Art, I worked on a variety of projects ranging from print layout to website content management and web application development.

I updated the content on the museum’s website and formatted their e-mail newsletter. Utilizing InDesign, I created menu signage for the cafe, rack card brochures, updated the volunteer application form, and designed a postcard.

My major project was creating a faux 3-D interactive map of the museum’s sculpture garden. I gathered reference shots of the building from every angle as well as establishing shots of the sculptures in relation to the building. Combining these photos with screenshots from Google Maps, I employed Illustrator to draw a 3-D model of the museum from both the front and back. Finally, I used CSS and JQuery to plot the sculptures and animate the information boxes and navigation.

The museum is using cards with QR codes so customers can access the map via ipods available at the front desk or personal smart phones.
