Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge

Website

Turning assumptions upside down.

Uniting scholars to study the process of knowledge formation from antiquity to the present.

The SIFK website is the institute’s portal to the world for both academic and non-academic audiences. We created this custom site on our Expression Engine platform and incorporated animation and interactive elements into it. The institute's logo, for instance, is redrawn if you mouse over it, and the news stories come forward slightly as your cursor hovers over them. On larger screen sizes, the navigation moves underneath the first two images, going beyond traditional navigation display. The design encourages exploration with large vibrant images displayed inside angular frames of different sizes. These small details showcase the institute's goal to examine old ideas in a new light and challenge common assumptions about what we "know" as true.
