Portfolio - University Units

Our team has created more than 350 sites currently hosted at Pitt. While units manage routine content updates through the content management system (CMS), our team provides technical support and content/strategy guidance on more complex updates.

We routinely work with units to establish and manage sites reaching both external and internal audiences. While we do not maintain content for most units, we strive to build sites that offer compelling design, user-friendly content management, and an intuitive and rewarding user experience.

The school's site was completely revamped with a fresh design and new content architecture. It is one of the largest and most complex Pitt websites, featuring six departments and more than 35 programs, with each functioning as a mini-website with unique functionality and custom permissions.

Our team redesigned the school's site to focus more on student recruitment. It was built with a customized version of our latest marketing-oriented template—replacing a previous vendor-produced format. New grid content types allow for better placement of information on resources and academics pages.

The School of Education website was reorganized to better highlight academic programs as opposed to departments. A program-finder page, colorful grids and imagery, and more dynamic navigation helped to place the school’s various learning opportunities front and center. News stories also are strongly positioned using homepage blocks that link to a dedicated news page.

Our overhaul of the IT website included a fresh new design and a clean, easy-to-use list of the office's services, software and help sheets. IT service status, service announcements and security alerts all appear on the homepage, so Pittsburgh-campus IT issues can now be found online in one spot.

Extensively updated in summer 2017 as Kathleen Blee became dean, this site serves as a portal to the school’s 45 departments and programs. Special features include a virtual tour, a diversity page, and a link to the Dietrich School’s e-newsletter, which our team also produced.

Our team enhanced this site's user interface and back-end content management system. We also implemented a new site structure and an audience-based navigation. (Previously, the site had grouped all services together.) The homepage now provides a clearer snapshot of key services and links.

The PTS website is a hub for a variety of services, including Parking, Transportation, Commuting, Surplus, Mailing Services, Printing Services, Moving Services and Central Receiving. Our redesign created a consistent look across the pages for all of those units, featuring a feature image followed by a grid of links.

A complete reorganization of the Human Resources site made it easier for visitors to find its most popular sections based on services (employee resources, health benefits, etc.) and audiences (new and current employees, students, retirees). Special features include a "Stay Connected with Us" page with links to social media and transportation resources.

Business.pitt.edu serves as a portal to the College of Business Administration (undergraduate studies) and Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business sites. While primarily a student recruitment tool, the site also connects visitors—including industry partners and employers—to Pitt Business strategic centers and initiatives, and it provides comprehensive information for alumni.

Our team updated the College of General Studies site's user interface and overall graphic look, using our University web theme. With easier navigation that provides information and services clearly and concisely, the site better serves the needs of prospective and current students.

Facilities Management updated its site in 2018. It showcases recent building renovation projects and updates, shares construction updates with the community, and highlights FM’s core services. The site upgrade added up-to-date images and incorporated new features that allow for effective marketing of department goals, such as a quick-icon area to help users access information they need quickly.

This hub for future medical professionals required a face lift. The newly launched site now reflects the school’s impressive legacy and will benefit any of the school’s future partnerships and attract support.
