My name is William Hawke Bassignani, and I am a graphic and web designer living in Boston. Currently at BU Interactive Design.
Bostonia is BU’s award-winning, print and online alumni magazine. We build everything responsively, including the feature stories, and publish three times a year.
First and foremost, Bostonia is a team effort: it truly takes a village.
My primary purpose is to maintain and improve the site’s front-end and CMS. I designed and built the current homepage design and internal page templates. The online magazine constantly evolves, however, so stay tuned.
I also build feature stories and interactive content for Bostonia. BU ID’s web designers translate the print magazine to the web, and the developers (myself included) make them real.
Faculty Experts are BU professors who make themselves available to the media as specialists in certain fields. BU Public Relations oversees this program.
We expanded the original, barebones database of contact information into a searchable resource for journalists.
Designed and built the site from scratch. Inherited (and updated) the visual styles from the current BU Public Relations site.
