Eri Design is extremely proud to announce that we have recently received two website awards for our work for Worcester State University and Maine College of Art. For Worcester State, we received a W3 Award for our development on their myWSU portal page. And for Maine College of Art, we received a Web Marketing Association WebAward (Davey Award) for an Outstanding Website.
Here at Eri Design, we always strive to achieve a specific visual identity with each one of our clients. Not only do we conceptualize the designs and graphics, but we construct the page in a way that is engaging and intuitive to each core audience.
The website for Maine College of Art was designed with the prospective students in mind. For this reason, the site was developed to utilize full-screen photography and videos to quickly grab the user’s attention. These visuals are accompanied by clear and concise navigation, as well as interactive actions to make the navigation process more intuitive. All of these elements working together make it extremely easy for prospective students to find information such as programs and current student work right within the homepage.
On the other hand, the myWSU page was designed with the current student in mind, as it is a private website that is only available to the Worcester State University community. The myWSU portal page utilizes a full-width dashboard approach that supplies students with both a “resource portal” and a “bookmark” for the latest news and events around campus. The page is fully interactive, with compelling photography and messaging and animated micro-interactions. Moreover, it aggregates their Instagram feed right onto the landing page, further emphasizing the “community” feel that is central to the success of the site. This new design approach makes it easy for students to navigate through the different resources.
These websites are successful for different reasons, and that is because we take a unique approach for each and every one of our clients. If you have a website that you would like to be designed or re-designed, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation at 508.459.1552.
