CPM Center

A website designed centered around the theory of Communication, Privacy Management (CPM). The website aims to be a go-to resource for everything related to the theory. The website is currently live and can be viewed here.

The Brief

 

 "We want a website to promote the virtual CPM Center and to be a resource for anyone interested in Communication, Privacy Management Theory."

 

Center for Communication, Privacy Management (CPM) is a virtual center based in the School of Liberal Arts, at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. They wanted to create a website around the CPM theory and its applications.
