TM asks a bunch of questions:
How about some new homepage pictures? Some ideas are the inside of a dining hall, the Law library, stained glass windows of Sage, Alice Cook House and something to do with WCMC. Also, what’s new with the “Spotlight” section we heard about a few months back?
Okay. Two questions. Anyway.
Even as we speak, Ieuan is putting the final touches on a requirements doc for University Photography for some new campaign images. The themes we’re working with are “CU in Summer” and “CU in Fall” and I do believe I’ve heard talk of the Law Library as subject matter. I’ll pass on the suggestions about dining halls and Alice Cook House. Weill is a little trickier (owing solely to location), but it’s a subject that has been on our minds since before we launched last August.
As for the Spotlight feature, we’re working on early comps. It turns out that finding space on the home page isn’t as simple as we’d first thought. When Will and Ieuan have comps that they like, we’ll post screen shots here for everyone’s feedback.
TM also says:
Undergrad admissions page could be improved with hightlights that would touch on academic initiatives and alumni profiles, etc. Any future developments going on with the alumni webpage or the College of AAP site? A page detailing the new capital campaign would be great as well.
I believe that AAP is just beginning the process of a redesign–putting out RFPs and the like. No word on their schedule or their vendor of choice.
And I’m going to pass your comments along to the Alumni webmaster, as he’s much better equipped to answer them than I am. I know that we have had several conversations about how to incorporate the new logo into the Alumni site, but it’s unclear to me whether they are planning a retro-fit or a redesign.
