Fletcher Design Co. LLC | Jackson Hole, WYO | A Fresh UI for Michigan Tech | Fletcher Design Co. LLC | Jackson Hole, WYO

I only spent a brief contract year at Michigan Tech but we got a lot of work done! One of my final projects was to give the homepage and global CMS elements a proper redesign. The old site was certainly functional but lacked the pop and immediacy expected in modern web design. Michigan Tech offers a cutting-edge education and I was committed to reflecting that in the new site. I went with an ultra-clean UI that drew the viewer into the imagery while distilling the information to only the mandatory elements. Working with Michigan Tech’s talented Creative Director, Brandy Tichonoff, we were able to do an extensive audit of the components and reconfigure the navigation to offer the most critical elements while leaving the remaining secondary navigation stuffed below in a floating footer. On hover, a nice HTML 5 gaussian blur pulls focus to navigation elements. The site is fueled by daily/weekly image uploads depicting life at Tech and giving the viewer a good feel for life in Houghton at any given moment. This was a fitting capstone to my time at Tech and it was great to work with such a talented web development team. Go Huskies! Check it out at: mtu.edu
