The Russell County Public Library is a small library with a big heart for the community it serves. Its previous website, like many sites more than a few years old, was not mobile friendly, difficult to update, and did not visually communicate the staff's enthusiasm. The goal was to create a site that would show patrons not only what the library has to offer, but the positive attitude staff members bring to the library experience.
Designing a logo to represent the Russell County (Kentucky) Public Library began with a fundamental question: What is a library? The answer, which came into focus through discussions with the library staff, is quite different from what it has been in years past. With digital materials, genealogy tools, career services, educational programs and much more, today's (and tomorrow's) library is more than books. It's CONTENT.
Working within a Larger Brand System for SCC
As part of the 16-school Kentucky Community & Technical College System, SCC's marketing materials need to dovetail with the system brand. Fonts, logos and colors are outlined by KCTCS' identity guidelines but otherwise schools are encouraged to create their own marketing materials that showcase their campuses, programs and unique strengths.
Creating a 3-D Campus Map for Somerset Community College
When a student searches for a room number, a program office or a destination like the cafeteria or art gallery on SCC's new mobile web map, the app takes them there virtually. The user crosses a 3-D campus map to arrive at the correct location, and is then shown the best route within the building to navigate to their room. Driving maps can also be accessed to get to the college's 5 other campuses.
From Our Hands to Yours
KSD worked with Tour Southern and Eastern Kentucky to build and launch an arts and crafts educational and marketing initiative that incorporates an iPhone app, a website and a promotional brochure. It’s called From Our Hands to Yours and it showcases the craft and artistry of more than 65 artisans found along the byways of southern and eastern Kentucky. KSD designed the iPhone app portion of From Our Hands to Yours to put a virtual gallery right in your hands. The app is a stunning art and craft gallery, a guide to annual craft festivals and craft retailers, and interactive instruction on how to play a mountain dulcimer. Download it from the App Store or browse From Our Hands to Yours on the web.
Room for Reading
Tall, narrow pylons mark main destinations in the library's reading room. All are visible across the large room and can be referenced when directions are given from the front desk. This interior system includes directory, ADA compliant room identification, donor recognition and end-of-range signs, as well as dimensional wall letters for a few special rooms. The sign program was built and installed utilizing a complete set of documentation drawings.
