The Center for Art + Thought website was created and designed in partnership with Behavior Design. Behavior worked hand-in-hand with CA+T as a strategic partner and collaborator to envision a compelling online user experience for the organization to support CA+T's ambitious mission. Behavior worked closely with CA+T's Founder and core staff to develop a new space for content curation, exploration, and dialogue. At the core of the interface is ability to tell multiple stories based on various content groupings, and enable cross-pollination of works, people and ideas. And most importantly, the virtual experience was geared to support an intermixing of forms of expression within both art and scholarship (i.e. video, images, text, conversation) in a thoughtful and seamless way.
