Work Completed: June 2014
The Deakin open day website was one of my first projects at Hardhat. The project had gone through alot of iterations as various designers had come and gone within the agency - so I was asked to look at the site and completely redefine the structure in order to bring all the elements together.
A university’s Open Day is the biggest day of the year and its best chance to attract new enrolments. In 2014, it goes without saying that whatever they do needs to engage and appeal to a tech-savvy audience.
Firstly I designed a fully responsive, beautifully designed website that had mobile users at its core. The focus of the site was to arm prospective students with everything they needed to know before heading to Deakin Open Day. The site had information on each campus, every session and plenty of content about what to expect, making it a no brainer
to choose to attend.
With so much going on during Open Day and information needing to be at people’s fingertips, I also designed an iOS and Android app that allowed students to intuitively plan their day, stay up to date with events and follow an interactive map around campus.
