Hey there! I’m Rahmonn McMillan, and I work on the Content Generation Team. Being an Art student, generating the visual content was something that was right up my alley. The class taught me to think more about the client and their interests, rather than my own personal taste. This is a lesson that is essential in the world of animation, and I’m glad I was able to learn it while on this project.
I was mostly tasked with redesigning the signage for the library itself. Not only was it small and/or confusing, visually, the signage lacked cohesion and and didn’t have the visual “pop” to stand out from everything else in the library. I ended up making a sample sign that was not only more legible, but it was also cohesive with the web tools we were making. I also proposed that we have an explanation of the Library of Congress classification posted by a circulation desk, or even in the app itself.
Overall this a very fun project to be a part of, and I’m glad I’m here!
