Our design team created an inviting website for prospective students that illustrated IWP’s international presence with a seamless aesthetic that blended the gravitas of statecraft visuals with a welcoming higher education look.

IWP’s user experience is optimized for mobile, ensuring that featured academic resources such as the Cyber Intelligence Initiative are always easily accessible.




WDG’s partnership with IWP was enriched by our workshops we conducted with them, including Voice and Tone and Writing for Web.¬†The top graduate school graciously allowed¬†our team to be the educators, as we provided them with mini-deliverables, an educational toolkit, and a clearer grasp of IWP’s messaging.

The Institute of World Politics is a not-so-hidden gem of D.C. academia, one whose new glittering site should attract the next generation of international leaders.
