JCHS wanted a new, fully responsive design that better aligned with current higher education trends while maintaining important accessibility features for their users. They desired a modern, fresh look with intuitive navigation and a full migration from their outdated CMS to Drupal. Because JCHS is an educational institution, they had strict time restrictions to launch the site before the upcoming school year.
After a thorough discovery phase, we were able to complete the new JCHS site within their time frame. We fully redesigned the site using the responsive Bear Skin theme, created by one of our developers, and we crafted a powerful UX framework, following logical navigation paths to improve usability.
Throughout the process, we maintained JCHS’s accessibility features, ensuring their new site would remain accessible to all users. We also fully rebuilt the site from the backend, making the experience seamless and easy to manage from both the front and back facing sites.
Jefferson also wanted to include a scholarship calculator to attract traffic from prospective students and their parents. It's an instant way for interested students to crunch numbers and see the financial opportunities at the institution. The scholarship calculator and other features were part of the key focus on communication.
We also built an interactive calendar with alert notifications for any campus security or weather updates. This is important feature ensures that Jefferson's entire community is notified in case of emergency.
With their new site, JCHS has enjoyed an easy-to-use, fully responsive site that matches the fresh, clean look of modern web design.
