Preserving Forest and Conservation History
The Forest History Society is a scholarly nonprofit library and archive dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating forest and conservation history for all to use. The society is continually seeking innovative ways of enhancing its programs in research, publication and education, and new methods for promoting the study of environmental history. Forest History Society approached Kompleks Creative when they were ready to refresh their existing website design. The information architecture needed improvement and the website did not accurately reflect the breadth of what they do. Given their desire to link the past to the future while reminding us of the importance of forest heritage, we incorporated black and white historic photos throughout the website. The result is a new website that is easy to navigate, accessible and encourages exploration. Given the rejuvenated brand, Forest History asked us to create a new logo design, establish a style guide and design complementary stationery.
