CU South Denver’s website refresh scores a 4.0

VOLTAGE design and front-end development unify the university’s site for a diverse group of visitors, and puts the Learn Forward campaign at the forefront.

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

University of Colorado South Denver navigation and organization

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

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
  • Workshops
  • Speakers
  • Industry education
  • Non-credit courses
