News from the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center
Welcome to version 2.0 of our website. Our first website was designed in two weeks ... this one has taken a little longer. However, we think our new one brings a tremendous improvement in functionality and design. Like a synthesis project, our team sought out ideas from a diverse set of users: researchers, students, policy makers, and staff, to name a few. We received proposals from many different design teams and selected LMD Agency to be our partner. We required a compressed schedule, and they delivered a creative website that met our parameters. We thank them for their professional efforts.
On our side, it was truly a team effort. Everyone within SESYNC participated in some fashion - from writing text, providing data, or reviewing design options. Our core team consisted of Mike Smorul, Travis Burrell, Mary Shelley, and Amanda Grimes; we now have a healthy appreciation of what it takes to design a responsive website.
Our new site has been designed to showcase new opportunities, funded projects, and results for our community. As you tour it, please drop us a line to let us know your thoughts and recommendations for future enhancements.
