MOAC Windows 8 Design

Microsoft reverted to flat colors and shapes for their Windows 8 design. As you can see below, the logo used to be wavy and the gradients gave it a solid 3-D feel. The Windows 7 operating system went further and encased the logo in a candy-like round button for the start menu. Then in Windows 8, they went in the other direction and made everything flat.

To match the new design, the co-branded catalog header for Wiley's Microsoft Official Academic Course series was updated to match. The gradient was dropped for an official Microsoft flat blue background. And the new font is being used for the title/logo. All other fonts are from the Wiley.com stylesheet.

Wiley Foundation

When updating legacy content, I often come across cases where we never got the original Photoshop files from the designer or it's so old that it got lost many generations ago. So I'll work from an existing JPG and use selections to keep parts of a composition. In the case below, we need to swap out the old logo for "Wiley" and replace with the Akzidenz-Grotesk font. The text was however placed on top of a background that was hard to rubber stamp out. So I kept the 3 square images and recreated the background using filters.

Wiley China

Wiley China is actually a minisite of Wiley.com US used for marketing purposes. As you can see with the old site, it was out of date for some time already. It needed some new templates to handle features more easily and in a more fixed manner. The new site was divided up and organized so that it would save time for non-technical editors. At the same time, it keeps the look consistent with the mother site.



TED Minisite

As part of a partnership with TED, Wiley had a minisite setup under their main Wiley.com. Unlike most minisites, this one used the same header and footer as the main site, so it saved a bit of time in coding the templates.
