In 2015, I worked with Vayakone Sphabmixay from SAX, Inc. implementing their redesign for Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina. There were many creative design pieces that presented fun challenges for implementing in a responsive environment.
Historical Year Timeline
The timeline is both collapsible and adapts to mobile devices. In addition, with this and other dynamic pages developed—such as the Past Presidents of ECSU—a page scroll to the updated area was necessary to orient users to new information.
Custom Weather Feed
If you use OmniUpdate for your Content Management System, you can set your feeds to republish every hour. This is perfect for third-party tools that are only free up to a number of page views. For ECSU, the weather feed was implemented using Weather Underground’s API and is re-published on an hourly basis.
The content tiles on ECSU’s admissions page were designed to link to other elements when a user hovers or clicks on a image.
