Custom Interactive and Print Design

Client: Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC)

Services provided:  Creative direction, graphic design (including print, web, and interactive design), website development and maintenance, logo and branding development, project management, research, writing, editing

This foundation from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture is a long-time provider of K-6 curricula and teacher training materials focused on the role of agriculture in Minnesota. Solberg Creative was brought in to update its print materials and develop a custom website with interactive games, which eventually had more than 500 pages of unique, education-forward content. The site was specifically designed to attract and retain kids’ attention. During our fifth year on the project, a new masthead and logo were created to give the curricula a more contemporary look, and the curricula overall, print and digital, was restructured to tailor it to specific grade levels.
