Minnesota Historical Society

Struggling to get kids interested in carrying out research projects on its online history database, the Minnesota Historical Society needed help.

We needed to create a project that highlighted an iconic Minnesota historical site and bring it to life with real-life stories.

John Lenker and Brad Randall created an interactive exhibit called Forests, Fields, and the Falls – Connecting Minnesota. John Lenker was the executive producer, information designer, application designer, writer, storyboard artist and creative director for the project that attracted the young generation to engage with the MHS. In 2003 Communication Arts and Print magazines honored the team with an Excellence in Interactive Communications Award.
