Recently Parsons has launched a much needed improved site. I worked on a Flash application of the site which serves as an exploratory navigation for potential students to discover programs they may be interested in based on floating keywords. The design was done by Dexter Miranda and supervised by Isa Gouverneur, both part of the Parsons creative team. The navigation also visually makes connections between programs or schools that share keywords. This is slightly confusing to explain, so take a look at the navigation itself.

Can’t find the navigation?

It is hidden until you move your mouse over the bottom portion of the red bar in the header. I am very glad they chose this navigation coded by Eduardo Menendez to trigger the exploratory navigation.

Some more screen shots.

Pop-up visuals on program or school click.
