About the Site
Launched in January 2009, the Peoplestown Project is devoted to studying and interpreting community-based movements and organizations in the Peoplestown neighborhood (central Atlanta). The project collects oral histories and historical manuscripts, develops interpretive programs, and facilitates local examination and interpretation of place and grassroots community organizing.
As the designer and lead front end developer, I coordinated with Kennesaw State University staff to:
- Design a youthful, engaging site that showcases the Peoplestown blog posts, case studies and projects.
- Implement the design in WordPress, creating custom post types to make it easy to feature new content.
