Design & Functionality

Initial banner design concept by USFSP graphic design students

Initial banner design concept by USFSP graphic design students

The recent redesign of the USFSP Web site was an iterative process spearheaded by the Division of University Advancement.

Students in the USFSP Program in Graphic Design held a competition during the Fall 2011 semester to create a style for the new site. The winning trio of Jason Mayry ’12, Monica Estornell ’12 and Kristine Richardson ’12 came up with the style used in the banner images. This style became the cornerstone for the rest of the design, which was completed by Michel Fougeres, Director of Constituent Services

Faculty, staff and student involvement has been key to the content and functionality as well. Student focus groups and a special Web Site Redesign Working Group made up of faculty, staff and students help to insure the new pages are functional, ADA accessible and usable.

Students in Journalism & Media Studies create videos each semester that we are happy to showcase on our Web pages and YouTube channel. Students and faculty also participate as featured bloggers and contribute to the vibrant photography sprinkled across the pages.
