We worked with Physics professor and Department Chair, Hideo Mabuchi, to create a new information architecture, design and user experience for the next evolution of the Stanford Department of Applied Physics site. To do so, we implemented a series of custom taxonomies that best conveyed the structure and needs of the department by research theme. Content is flagged with a relevance rating for four research themes so that users can view content (faculty, courses, publications, and alumni) specifically for those areas, as well as drill-down to a breadth of physics content through a faceted search. The design is intentionally minimalist, with large images reflecting the visual content of the department’s fields of study.
