UCSF School of Dentistry Launches new Drupal website
University of California - San Francisco launches a new website for the School of Dentistry. The new website puts the users first and focuses on ease of use, direct access to more relevant information and a content management system (Drupal) that simplifies updates. Some of the more complex features include:
- Domain access which controls content on two different domains (dentistry.ucsf.edu as well as cmb.ucsf.edu)
- Workflow that allows users to make edits throughout their section, but a moderator pushes the content live
- A better display of information and content throughout, but especially in the CMB section which allows a 'sneak peak' of each faculty member's information without having to leave the main page.
A mobile version will be launching in a few weeks. Visit the website at dentistry.ucsf.edu
After interviewing several graphic and web design companies, we decided to work with Project6 because they impressed us as having the right balance of a strong design sense and deep technical expertise, as well as the demonstrated ability to plan and manage a project on the scale and complexity of ours,” said David Hand, Communications Manager at the UCSF School of Dentistry. “Project6 challenged us re-imagine the user interface and design of our site, and we weren't disappointed. The Project6 team met with us regularly to develop a comprehensive understanding of our needs, and those of our site's various audiences. The resulting site is a significant advancement in terms of appearance, usability, and functionality. Thanks to the very thoughtful, inclusive design process conducted by Project6, our user community approval has been universal. We love the new site!”
