Designing a logo to represent the Russell County (Kentucky) Public Library began with a fundamental question: What is a library? The answer, which came into focus through discussions with the library staff, is quite different from what it has been in years past. With digital materials, genealogy tools, career services, educational programs and much more, today's (and tomorrow's) library is more than books. It's CONTENT.

The Russell County Public Library is a small library with a big heart for the community it serves. Its previous website, like many sites more than a few years old, was not mobile friendly, difficult to update, and did not visually communicate the staff's enthusiasm. The goal was to create a site that would show patrons not only what the library has to offer, but the positive attitude staff members bring to the library experience. 

Incorporating the library's new brand (also created by KSD) which features bright, friendly colors, the site's front page presents the most important core links in large, graphic buttons with a full menu at the bottom of the page. Photos of library patrons with their favorite books rotate in the center. Interior pages contain full navigation menus at the bottom and in the sidebar for ease of use. On mobile devices, a simplified, retractable navigation system displays at the top of every page.

The new website was built with a content management system, allowing the staff to make updates from any web browser. Designed to be responsive, the site automatically detects screen sizes and reconfigures accordingly. It is optimized to work on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.

On occasion we need a little creative inspiration. This week our good friend and occasional collaborator, Dan Dutton, took the staff of KSD on a walking tour of an amazing private sculpture garden in development by Pulaski County attorney and art collector Richard Hay.

Just show the art. That's what it finally boiled down to when trying to define a structure for artist Dan Dutton's new website. Although a lot of techy stuff is going on behind the screen, the result is a simple, easy to access, visual display of the art of Dan Dutton.

Dan has worked with KSD on a variety of projects over the last 25 years (both as contributor and client), but only recently have we undertaken the task of creating a web presence to showcase his remarkable talent, and expansive scope of work. That scope is far too wide to present in it's entirety, so the site is built to display as much, or as little, as Dan wants to show, at any given time.
