Digital humanities, done creatively

auut studio designs digital projects with scholars and researchers — using interactivity, visualizations, and maps alongside compelling stories and the primary documents. The concepts normally laid out in text we set in motion for a reader to interact with and assemble for themselves.

We’re not afraid of small budgets, and excited to highlight overlooked lessons from people of color. Inquire how we might help you communicate your passion.

Top photo collage: The names of the faces in these photos are lost to history. They come from a collection of cartes de visite (“visiting cards”), a form of portrait photography in the mid- to late-1800s. As a thin paper print, these cards were relatively inexpensive and could be sent in the mail. For many people this was the first time they could collect portraits of their family and friends –​ leading to a wildly popular photo craze, not too different from today.  [Learn more]

Photo of woman at table: From photographer Lewis Wickes Hine, this photo was taken in 1917 of the Civarro family living on 2nd Ave in New York City. It is in the public domain at the Library of Congress.
