Melbourne School of Design planned to relaunch their website to make it more future student focused. The purpose of the project was to refresh all content along with the look and feel of the website, but also integrate the design into the existing University of Melbourne website to avoid disconnect.
This design harmonises with the University’s branding and adheres to the University grid format (960 pixels wide and using 16 columns). The design is also responsive. This means that content shifts and resizes effectively when viewing on a smart phone or tablet. To give MSD a unique look I chose new web safe fonts (Droid Sans and Arvo), created a background pattern, designed icons and added subtle textures and shadows to create a tactile feel.
