Smithsonian - Lakota Winter Counts

The Smithsonian Institution has a strong hold on the market for brick-and-mortar museums, but they wanted to reach a broader audience online for their exhibit of Lakota Native American Winter Count pictograph calendars.

We were commissioned to create an online exhibit and research tool to serve multiple audiences. With a broad spectrum of content, the exhibit had to be easy to use and engaging.

John Lenker was the executive producer, senior information architect/designer, application designer and creative director. The project won the 2005 United Nations World Summit Award.
