Starting today, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design has a new look on the web.
The website redesign features a new logo and a new banner. The logo is pretty simple – it’s an “X.” MCAD President Jay Coogan explains the new logo this way:
The new logo mark shows two arrows that have come together to form an intersection. The Intersection is illustrative of the new MCAD vision statement, “transforming the world through creativity and purpose.” MCAD is the place where creativity meets purpose, and increasingly where the student experience will take place at the intersection of the campus and the world at large.
The website banner, which used to feature silhouettes of the Minneapolis skyline, now shows students and their work. Visitors to the website can click on the images and be taken to a virtual gallery of student work.
The new look on the website is the first stage in a three part overhaul; the next two phases will be geared at adding services for students/alumnae and faculty/staff, respectively.
The website and logo were both created by MCAD alums. The redesigned logo was created by MCAD DesignWorks Director J. Zachary Keenan ’05; Little & Company, the Minneapolis-based consultancy founded by Monica Little ’78, designed the new website.
