NM Site – Week 6
At the beginning of this project we decided to use WordPress for the CMS backend of the new site. This week I spent a lot of time going back over the designs with eyes on how the elements could work across the site and how I could create templates for the addition of future pages and content to the site. Using WordPress gives the site a stable structure that would allow for it to be easily updated by staff and students. And having a site that was being used and updated consistently in this way made it a vastly more valuable asset to the NM Dept as a whole. Finally, they would have a hub for online activity that not only represented the department’s aesthetic but could grow and change with them.
