the project

Susan is Lecturer in Data, AI and Society at the University of Sheffield and was looking to create a website that would put her latest publication online. The book was published as open access by Palgrave Macmillan in 2021 and the website went live at the same time, offering the full content for online reading.

This project's aim was to design a website that would reflect the book in detail, mirror its structure including footnotes and references ~ allowing readers to dip in and out, or to read the book in full.

PHASE I: work done

  • analysis of the book, its content and structure
  • design planning for interface and interlinking of content
  • design for contents overviews and links between pages
  • typesetting and layout design for readability and accessibility
  • design for footnotes, figures and tables

I asked her to design a website that would show off the contents of my academic book and make it accessible and usable for students and people who work in policy and social and cultural sectors. What Prisca delivered way exceeded my expectations.
