VOLTAGE adds on-page organization, content and new Shopify tools to boost OUAI’s category landing pages.
The South Denver campus of the University of Colorado is home to college classrooms, event spaces and a museum. To make their services clear to online visitors, VOLTAGE reworked the website architecture. Creative design achieved site-wide compliance without sacrificing style. We highlighted the Learn Forward campaign and invited students of all ages to enlist in professional development.
Helping you find your way
First, we took into account the amount of services CU South Denver offers. After summarizing content, we reordered pages with an organized plan. A simplified navigation bar benefits teachers scheduling field trips, event managers looking for catering prices and students researching degree programs. Changes include:
- A streamlined site map
- Overhauled navigation
- Improved user experience
- A new footer
Designing with accessibility in mind
Second, we updated the design with a crisp, professional look. A new font and custom icons bring South Denver up to par with other University of Colorado sites.
The website’s design also meets WCAG AA compliance, making the information accessible to more visitors than ever before. We nailed on-brand style that meets the criteria of high-contrast design.
Promote education at all levels
Third, we put the new Learn Forward campaign at the forefront of the university’s digital presence. A brand new homepage highlights professional development courses including:
- Mini schools
- Industry education
- Non-credit courses
We elevated CU South Denver’s look and feel for a faster, more up-to-date experience. Students, public school teachers and professionals can now find the info they need with ease, less clutter and simple navigation.
