Changing economic predictions worldwide.

Melissa Dell, from Harvard’s Economics Department, has an ambitious challenge: to change how economic predictions are made worldwide, historically and up to the present.

Our goal: to come up with a collaborative solution for sharing historical information from the Harvard Libraries with researchers all around the world.

After weeks of research and interviews, we were able to create an open-source collaborative platform to democratize economic historical information for researchers: AHEAD, the Automated Historical Editable Archive of Datasets.

We worked on very simple aesthetics and design that applied to both the branding and the web design.
