Solutions

Starting with an on-site kick-off meeting, in10sity and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff website team discussed the challenges and goals for the revamped website to ensure project success. Starting with modern design concepts and site map reconfiguration, we worked as a team to fine tune an intuitive user experience. Like so many of our education clients, the University of Pine Bluff had a lot of information to share and understood the importance of making the content easy to find for their various audiences. The mega-menu was a great choice! Solving the problem of the never-ending drop down navigation, this menu spreads the width of the page and allows for a nice display of several levels of content.

Taking the design one level deeper, several custom underpage layouts were developed to best present the unique content for each department. And with nearly 75% of potential students using social media to learn more about education institutions now, getting social media icons front and center was also a high priority. With a suite of styled icons above the main navigation on the home page, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is able to showcase their activity in various social media outlets.
