FHI 360 required an e-learning site to train young aspiring documentary filmmakers throughout the Middle East. This is a placeholder site put in place until the e-learning site is complete. We built a simple contact form and a lengthy application form - all in Farsi. The Persian text runs right to left and as such we designed our template around that.

This site won a DesignFirms Web Award in June 2006. We received this award alongside the official site for Casino Royale (James Bond film), both in their Arts and Entertainment category.
The site's design puts the emphasis on Ms. Jacobs' work, with muted but warm colors and large images giving her paintings and drawings center stage. This site was redesigned in February 2009 to update its look, but also to give her easier access to updating the pages and portfolio. It was migrated from static HTML pages with manually updated Flash and XML for the portfolio to Joomla, so that images can be added without touching any code or using FTP.
