One of my roles at Oakland University is to create infographic content to promote alumni, research and other general university initiatives. This interactive map features the international summer research that 30+ faculty members around OU conducted throughout a semester.
I designed the map and functionality and our web developer built the site. The map highlights over 20 countries, which was one of the design challenges in deciding how to display faculty's multiple areas of research. The site was well-received through social media and helped promote OU's study abroad program and faculty accomplishments, to our internal and external audiences.
The site has since been moved to a new template, so some style issues aren't updated, but you can view the live site here.
The December 2014 graduation marked Oakland University's 100,000 alumni milestone. Our social media team used this opportunity to promote alumni accomplishments and promote alumni engagement. This infographic was one of the tactics to get some data out that hadn't been seen before this comprehensively.
I worked with the alumni data team to get the information on majors and current location to put together this infographic. This graphic helped to get stories about the university's growth out to local media including The Detroit Free Press, Oakland Press and Crain's Business Detroit.
One challenge often cited by students on campus is parking. During welcome week, it can be even more challenging with new students, new construction, traffic and congestion.
I designed this map to be distributed through social media and in print so students could easily see construction sites, suggested parking lots, bus routes, information stations, and walkways between buildings on campus.
In 2014, Oakland University celebrated the 50th reunion of the charter class graduation. Nearly 100 alumni from 1964 returned to campus for a weekend of events. This infographic was on the website for the reunion along with event info and registration.
This website was designed to interactively show the history of Oakland University since its founding in 1957. I designed the map and timeline, and the user interaction, and our web team developed the project.
The timeline was launched to celebrate Founder's Day and the opening of OU's new engineering building, student housing, clock tower, parking structure and outdoor track and field complex.
