The Challenge

Building a website that emboldens a brand. NSU is a important part of their community in Aberdeen South Dakota. From their football team to their homecoming celebration, the whole town gets involved. We wanted NSU's website to have as much personality and presence as they do.   

  • Refocus messaging around admissions and aid
  • Modernize the existing website
  • Prioritize mobile user experience
  • Improve navigation and how users access information
  • Integrate with Acalog, 25Live, Formstack and YouVisit Virtual Tour

Strategy

Online Surveys

We wanted to hear directly from students how they use the website and what's most important to them. This allowed us to base our design decisions on real students and their unique needs.

Design

We worked with NSU to create desktop and mobile designs in tandem. We NSU has a larger than average portion of mobile users and we wanted to prioritize their user experience as well.

Development

NSU needed the works when it came to development: content migration, lots of integrations, advanced content workflows and training. Good thing they partnered with KWALL!
