A Fresh Look for a Minnesota Institution
Updating the design for Minnesota State University Mankato in a way that didn’t remake the entire website.
Piggybacking off of some deep-level site mapping and user discovery research, Blend began working with Minnesota State University Mankato to bridge the gap between design and development.
What this meant was taking the Episerver (now Optimizely)-focused content model and designing a university experience that mirrored both the university’s history and future. Design was sketched as a set of iterative wireframes, which combined both existing layouts and updated user interfaces. This included a recommendation for adjusting of overall navigation paths — via that updated site map and top-level navigation.
