Long gone are the days of people accessing websites solely on their desktop PC and the numbers who use smart phones and tablets to browse our site are growing all the time.
As a result of this we aim to convert the site to a responsive design that adjusts gracefully to fit on desktop, tablet, and smartphone browsers.The new responsive WIT website will look good no matter what platform you use to access the site.This is a large project and involves a extensive restructure of the site and will be a 'mobile first' perspective, working up to larger screen or desktop sizes.
Revamped News and Events Section.
The news and events section of the website has become a very important portal for information about the institute.With this in mind we have decided to redesign that area with a new independant events layout which will provide an institute/sitewide calendar system for wit.ie.The design of the events area will also feed into a complete restructure of the current news section of the site.
This project was based around creating a facility for staff to build their own profiles which would appear in the staff directory and also in related areas of the website.This involved creating a middle-end platform where staff could login to both create a profile and maintain it over time.
The staff profile contains a number of conditional elements so the user can display as much or as little information as they require.
