Level Page Designs
Following our earlier posting of an initial programmed prototype of the new NC State home page, we’re excited to show final designs for the secondary or level pages (what you’ll see if you click on any of the main navigation). To view prototypes of all the level page designs, click here. Please note that all images are just flat JPG's at this time and not programmed templates.
The committee will roll out the redesigned university home and level pages this summer.
When viewing the designs, the first two pages you’ll see are templates that will be used for most secondary pages. The navigation in the left-hand column continues from the home page with bread-crumb navigation to indicate where a visitor is within the site. Third-column (far right) elements include helpful links relevant to the page’s content and other important information delivered via static images, headlines, rotating facts and images or video.
The third image represents a content-heavy template that will be used sparingly.
Finally, the last image shows how visitors will continue to drill down from the home page’s main content or feature area if a user were to click “learn more.” Additional feature stories are archived by category and date. As explained in an earlier blog entry, these videos will be produced not only by Public Affairs, but also by you. We will be seeking regular content and story contributions and ideas from NC State students, faculty and staff, alumni, and parents.
As always, we look forward to your feedback in the comments section.
