Design & Functionality
The recent redesign of the USFSP Web site was an iterative process spearheaded by the Division of External Affairs.
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 Fougères, project lead.
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.
