Wisconsin Lutheran College launches new website
Date Posted: January 20, 2010
MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Lutheran College is pleased to announce its newly redesigned website, wlc.edu, a project that gives the college's website a fresh and dynamic design.
The goal of the new look is to offer a vastly improved browsing experience for prospective students, as well as for current students, parents, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff. The site also reflects the vibrant visual appeal of the college’s print publications, and its improved streamlined navigation means users will always be just a click or two away from key information.
The project was completed entirely in-house by a collaboration of campus offices that headed by Vicki Hartig, associate vice president of marketing & communication, and included Chad Lindemann, professor of art, Olya Finnegan, web developer, and Eva McGillivray, web & marketing coordinator. During the redesign development, the site was pre-screened by an on-campus group of students, faculty, and staff, as well as by industry professionals.
"We wanted to create a more current and polished design created through clarity of proportional organization, typography, images, and colors," says Lindemann. "From early reviews, it appears we've accomplished that to a large degree."
The relaunch of wlc.edu comes within a year of other recent website launches for WLC including the my.wlc.edu portal and the admissions microsite, www.beawlcwarrior.com. The last redesign of the website was in 2005.
The entire conversion process will be accomplished by the end of February 2010. Visitors are welcome to post comments regarding the redesign on the Beyond the Bricks blog.
