        UC, Riverside faced a major challenge in trying to upgrade their outdated brand
image to one that was reflective of the innovative research being carried on
within the school and their distinguished faculty.

        To change and enhance perceptions of the UCR brand, we coupled innovative
photography and  interactive elements to increase visual impact that personified
the essence of their brand.  Also, we presented the pillars of UCR's research in
a way that broke from conventional, academic approaches. This was accomplished
through interactive navigation and storytelling that brought the human element
by talking about the scientists performing this work.
