Monday, iFactory presented the second round of the proposed private-site site map to the Website Working Group. The group was pleased with the progress.
Next Wednesday and Thursday, Pete and Carolyn from iFactory will be on campus to conduct usability testing on the public-site wireframes. The testing will help us and iFactory determine whether they have made the correct choices in organizing the public site’s information and labeling the navigation so that finding the information will be intuitive for our site’s visitors.
Next Thursday, iFactory’s art director will present round 1 of the art direction to the Website Working Group. iFactory has used our branding standards (fonts, colors and logo) as a base for developing some concepts for visually conveying the EVMS story through the website. These concepts will be refined over two rounds and used in the next step – the one all the preliminary work has been leading up to: creating three choices for new home-page and typical-page designs. Those come in December.
And a reminder: We have scheduled an Advisory Committee meeting for Monday, Nov. 21. One item on the agenda will be a presentation of the public-site wireframes, so be sure your department/program representative attends.
If you have questions or comments about the project, please leave a comment here on the blog or email Kim Lewandowski.
