Design refresh update: Sneak peek

The timeframe for rolling out the design refresh and template changes will be several more weeks, but in the meantime here are a few more details about the design refresh we’re excited to share with you all:

  • Overall cleaner look with fewer grey borders and more white space
  • Website background color will be changing from light grey to white
  • Font size and line height (space between lines) will be increasing 15-25% (depending on the content type)
  • Yellow page titles will be replaced by red page titles (hooray!)
  • The Jumbotron and Quicklinks content types will be redesigned with brighter brand colors and a cleaner look (goodbye black and yellow flags!)
  • More options for content type placement. Some content types are currently limited to just one zone, but after the roll out, more content types will be available in more zones. For example, the infographic content type (which is currently only available in zone A) will be offered in all zones on the page.
  • New styles for all banners
  • Launching several new content types, among which include the Panel, and the Spotlight, which we’re excited to show you a sneak peek of the designs by clicking to read in our blog post.

Albers URLs are changing

Albers School of Business and Economics will be changing the URL of their websites from www.seattleu.edu/albers/ to www.seattleu.edu/business/ in order to increase their website’s search engine optimization (SEO). This change is scheduled to occur next Thursday, September 7.

SEO is a set of techniques to make your website more visible to search engines like Google and Bing; and the more visible or highly ranked your website is to search engines, the more likely you will connect with more, new users. Read our blog post if you want to find out more about SEO and things you can do to increase your SEO using TerminalFour.
