A Temple to Science and Industry

The Museum of Science & Industry came to Odopod with the goal to build a life-long, inspiring relationship with their physical and virtual guests by offering great content and helpful resources. We also wanted to establish a strong sense of place and to capture the Museum's commitment to inspire the inventive genius in everyone.

Odopod designed a site that encourages users to discover new, engaging content while keeping the information and navigation clear and consistent. It's designed for the Museum's diverse audience: people who need to quickly find the basics; those who are curious about what the museum has to offer; students and educators in need of fun educational materials; recent visitors of the museum who want to discover more; donors, job seekers, members, and more.

Backed by a robust Content Management System, we designed flexible templates that allow the Museum to add new exhibits, activities, and downloadables. We also included fun, tactile interactive elements that mimic the Museum experience, such as Step-by-Step How-Tos, Timelines, Polls & Trivia, an Interactive Map, Slideshows, an embeddable Video Player, and more.

"It's insane how much easier it is to create new content and edit old," Steven Beasley, Manager of Web & Interactive for MSI, reports almost a year after the launch. "Site structure, design, and the CMS have all had a huge play here."

Odopod is now Nurun

We're still in San Francisco, still under the same leadership, still doing great work (here are some case studies). But now we're a lot larger. We've joined a host of Nurun offices around the globe, all part of Publicis Worldwide.

Our focus remains on helping clients succeed in a connected world with products and services that transform the consumer experience.

We continue to work with forward-thinking, longstanding clients including Tesla, Google, Sony and Audemars Piguet. More recently, we've established new relationships with Dolby, the San Francisco 49ers, GoPro, and Blu Homes.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you too.
