Design and Development

Solutions for Higher Education with Cascade Server

This project actually included two responsively designed sites:  jsu.edu and jsu.edu/news, which received great responses from students and faculty via social media channels following the launch.

This full responsive redesign involved integrating the designs into Cascade Server CMS.  Several templates were designed to provide the client with a library of graphical assets to leverage within their CMS. The user interface elements that were designed were consistent with the current brand usage but also introduced new web elements that were a solid reflection of the brand voice. Widgets were used within the content management system to allow the client to easily include these assets into their pages. Call to action buttons used colors from the established web palette to draw attention and create interest.
