LiU web changes its appearance today!
The "facelift" has been in planning for some time and Linköping University (LiU) will launch the new look today.
The adaptation allows LiU web to follow the expression of white, bright and "LiU-blue" which is the graphic identity developed in recent years, says Magnus Johansson, central web coordinator for LiU. He elaborates:
“The purpose of the face-lift is to create a brighter and lighter LiU web. The greatest change is to the home page where navigation methods have been redone, while all other pages retain their basic structure. Marked changes include a more simple and common header and searchable text indicating the department or its equivalent. The footer is the same for all pages and contains direct links to main sections. We have also introduced our ‘house-font’ for the highest heading levels. “
LiU's start page represents the most evident change providing improved optimising for audience targeting and entry points for the university's principal tasks: education, research and collaboration. Those entry points receiving the most visitors are highlighted, while the former more organization-oriented navigation is relegated further down the hierarchy. LiU web is large and complex and it will be some time before the new look is implemented for all sites and departments.
“I would also like to mention that we have initiated a feasibility study for a project that addresses an entirely new LiU web. It is a major undertaking that will result in a completely redesigned web structure within 2 to 3 years," says Johansson, who hopes that today's update renders LiU web more modern.
