The Berggruen Institute develops fresh ideas that shape social and political thought and institutions.
We've put in over a decade of crafting Ruby on Rails applications. Our experience enables us to build your product the right way.
Design is more than just pretty pixels. We believe that investing in great design is critical for the success of any product.
We've been separating the models, views, and controllers with Rails for years and AngularJS allows us to make things more maintainable on the front-end too.
One of our most important jobs at the beginning of a project is to understand what business goals are driving the project.
Berggruen was created to develop foundational ideas and, through them, shape political and social institutions for the 21st Century. That's where we came in. Littlelines was challenged with creating an application that would position the institute well as they continue their plans for rapid expansion across geopolitical landscapes. We created a fully custom admin for the Berggruen team to showcase various forms of content produced by members of the organization or published on various news platforms.
The main web application was designed to showcase each segment within the Berggruen Institute. Geared more toward the individuals whom make up the institute, users can quickly navigate to various centers to read recent publications authored by various members and affiliates.
We designed Insights to be the voice of the Berggruen Institute, showcasing events and publications in a periodical format. Insights is unique in that each piece of media is either about the Institute or a member of the Institute. By easily switching between topics or issues, visitors of the site can quickly digest new information on any device.
"On both a professional and personal level the Littlelines team has been an absolute pleasure to work with. They have been integral in spearheading multiple projects for us - coming up with attractive and intuitive designs based on our often rough suggestions. In many ways they have become an extension of our own team here at the Berggruen Institute."
