Washington University in St. Louis established the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics in 2010, to foster rigorous scholarship and public engagement on the intersections of religion and politics in the American context. Point Five provided a full website redesign for the Center in 2020, from strategy through development and launch.

Seek‘s website is a 2019 Webby Honoree in the category of General Websites: Science.  The website, which we designed and launched in 2018, is more than a digital version of the print magazine; it’s integral in fulfilling Seek‘s mission to share accessible, compelling stories that go behind the scenes of today’s breakthrough science research.

Point Five and our wonderful collaborators received several honors for our work on Columbia Journalism Review at the Society of Publication Designers 54th Annual Design Competition. Pictured: The Threats Issue, cover and opener art by Melinda Beck.

Columbia Journalism Review is a finalist for the 2019 National Magazine Award for General Excellence—the most prestigious honor given by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

The Perception Issue of Columbia Journalism Review explores “what the press looks like from the outside—and what we misread about ourselves.” Thinking about the subjective nature of perception guided our experimental approach to this issue’s art direction: we gave six very different artists an open-ended prompt to depict how the press is perceived. Artists: Edmon de Haro, Serge Bloch, Ellen Weinstein, Vivienne Flesher, Dadu Shin, Lincoln Agnew

A Sense of Place: Our February issue of PCMA Convene is here. We just love the scenes JooHee Yoon created for the cover and opener.
