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."

Same Team, New Name

It's been thirteen years since we started Odopod.

We've always wanted one thing: to do the best work of our lives. Along the way, we have been joined by an eclectic and exceptionally talented bunch of people who wanted the same thing. Together, we've built a company we love.

Two years ago, Odopod was acquired by Nurun.

The acquisition was a validation of everything we had built. It was also a catalyst for some big changes we wanted to make. We began to tackle bigger, thornier problems and to work all over the world. With Nurun, we've had a series of huge wins and have been producing our best work yet.

That's why we recently decided to retire the Odopod brand, formally adopt Nurun as our name, and take the reins of Nurun's US operations.

We're all still here—same team with the same appetite for great work, only now with different e-mail addresses and more frequent flyer miles. And we're growing, so send your talented friends our way.

Keep an eye out for new work from Nurun. It will be our best yet.
