Offices of University Communications, Information Technology ready new look for Marshall website


NewWebsiteDesign_revThere’s a new look coming for the Marshall University website, and it is scheduled to roll out Thursday afternoon, Aug. 6.

Members of the University Communications website work group and Web Designer Justin Howell have been working for several months to get the new look online.

“We are so pleased to have this fresh, new design for the website,” said Ginny Painter, senior vice president for communications and marketing. “It is targeted to students and prospective students, and will have an increased emphasis on mobile applications and a clean look that we think people will find attractive and easy to use.”

On Thursday, the Marshall community will be able to see the new homepage and top-tier landing pages, some of which are new. The new design is compatible with the current WordPress theme used by departments across the university, so the transition should be smooth. A WordPress theme to coordinate with the new homepage design is being developed and will be rolled out to university website administrators in the next several weeks.
