Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs 2014 Annual Report for the Hawaii Community Foundation

August 21, 2014


Wall-to-Wall Studios designed & developed the integrated (print & interactive) 2014 Annual Report for the Hawaii Community Foundation, a philanthropic organization that helps people make a difference by inspiring the spirit of giving and by investing in people and solutions to benefit every island community. As a resource, a partner, a funder and as an advocate, at the heart of everything the Hawaii Community Foundation does is a commitment to deliver meaningful impact that will benefit Hawaii.


The annual report website was developed using the W|W RCMS, (ruby on rails content management system), and integrated the use of Responsive Design to optimize the user experience for desktop, mobile & tablet devices. The annual report project reflects an ongoing collaboration with the Foundation that has included branding efforts on behalf of The Daniel K. Inouye Institute and Pillars of Peace, among others.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs and Develops Website for Carnegie Mellon University's College of Fine Arts

August 19, 2014

Wall-to-Wall Studios designed & developed the website for Carnegie Mellon University's College of Fine Arts, a community of nationally and internationally recognized artists & professionals within a unique constellation of five professional schools: Architecture, Art, Design, Drama & Music - and associated centers & programs. The interactive project with the College of Fine Arts continues a series of successful branding collaborations with The School of Music and The School of Drama, among other Carnegie Mellon University interests. 


The website was developed using the W|W RCMS, Wall-to-Wall Studios' custom ruby on rails content management system, and integrated the use of Responsive Design to optimize the user experience for desktop/laptop, mobile devices and iPad/tablet. The Responsive Design website approach responds to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation by using a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.
