A new site for a venerable publication

Posted by jamie | April 2, 2014

YLJ.orgMy team here at Tierra and our friends at Point Five are delighted to announce the redesign of The Yale Law Journal’s website.

Working closely with the 2013-14 editors, Tierra and Point Five reimagined the website to facilitate easy reading for legal scholars.  Among the site’s principle features are an easy to browse archive, side by side footnote overlays for reference and full HTML articles, an innovation few law journals have attempted to date given the extensive length and annotations of legal scholarship.

In addition to implementing the beautiful new site design by the Point Five team, Tierra developed a highly streamlined publishing process as part of the new custom CMS for the site.  Final drafts of edited and approved articles in a Microsoft Word format are uploaded to the CMS and then automatically parsed and rendered as HTML for publishing.  Additional documents (PDFs, tables, images) can also be inserted into the HTML. 

Hats off to the YLJ editors for their vision, patience, and dedication to this project as well.  It was a fantastic collaboration for our teams.

2013 Webbys honor 4 Tierra projects

Posted by melissa | April 19, 2013

Webby Award NomineesThree major projects that Tierra designed and built for The Poetry Foundation have been recognized by the Webbys this year.

The multi-award winning POETRY app was a nominee in the running for this year’s best mobile app in the Education & Reference category. Now’s your chance to show your love of POETRY. Cast your vote in the Webbys People’s Voice Awards.

The Poetry Foundation’s website, which features the organization’s vast database of poetry, and the Poetry Out Loud website, which supports a national recitation contest co-sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, were named as honorees.

The CW Network app was also a Webby honoree in the Entertainment category for tablets and other mobile devices. Tierra enabled these full-episode streaming video apps to be published from the core Tierra-built CMS that powers CWTV.com. Our work supported Phunware and Digitalsmiths as well as the WBTV Digital Media and CBS groups, who led this project.

Awards for our 10th Anniversary

Posted by jamie | October 10, 2012

W3 AwardWhat a great way to celebrate Tierra’s 10th anniversary in business last month. While we were busy re-launching The CW website, we received news that two of our projects were honored with  Silver W3 Awards in mid-September.

Even better — one of them was for this (Tierra’s own) website, which we re-launched a few months ago.  Hats off to our team that worked on the ‘responsive’ re-design:  Gerard Gualberto, Jennifer Over, Heidi Adams and Melissa Wolff.

The second award was for CWingo — a web-based, bingo-type game synced to on-air CW show broadcasts.  We collaborated with our friends at Warner Bros. to build CWingo in late 2011 and the game was used throughout last season.  It will make a re-appearance this season as well with some upgrades.

So, here’s to the last 10 years of successful collaborations with our clients! Onto the next 10!
