The Associated Students of Westminster (ASW) are the student government of Westminster College, a private liberal arts college in Utah. ASW enlisted my aid to design their new web presence in order to encourage student participation in campus events, student clubs and organizations, and involvement in student government.
Designing the Website
When designing a website, I first work with the client to figure out the purpose of the website. What are we trying to say and accomplish with the website? It was clear that ASW basically wanted a professional and fun website that outlined what they are, advertised campus events, encouraged participation in student government, and gave students an easy way to contact them.
I used Writemaps to create a sitemap for the website and Balsamiq to create wireframes for each section of the site to block out the basic elements and to give me some blueprints to work from.
A Great Result
It was refreshing to work with clients who really care about other students and involvement on campus. We were able to work together to create a website and brand that not only fulfilled its purpose, but was one that we could both be proud of.
