Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology

Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC)

KIPAC wanted to replace their existing site with a content management system to organize content geared towards several diverse audiences more appropriately.

A key directive from KIPAC and its funders is to provide material that engages non-scientists more easily. The home page animation is one example of how the site fulfills that directive. The animation “layers” content and the audiences can “drill down” to the level of detail and technical complexity appropriate to their expertise.

Functionality in the "People" directory allows visitors to use filters to find specific people within a very large list. The site also includes a Multimedia section of videos and images.

Wired Moon was responsible for the entire development process, including:

  • Technical strategy
  • Information architecture
  • Visual design
  • Content consulting
  • Drupal implementation
  • LDAP integration
  • Project management
