TAMU Webmaster's Blog


Information and insight from the A&M Webmasters

New Multimedia Page

June 3rd, 2010 by tamuwebmaster

As some of you may have heard already, we have launched our new and improved Multimedia Page.  This site is the hub for all things multimedia for Texas A&M: screensavers, wallpapers, firefox personas, photos, videos, etc.

We wanted this site to stand out from our other pages and use it as an outlet for trying new and inventive approaches to design that cannot be done on www.  Before designing the site, I did research on web design trends for 2010, and found that hand drawn elements and large, bold headers are going to be popular this year (this explains why you may have seen me doodling on paper taped to the windows of Bizzell Hall last month).  I used these elements throughout the site along with lighter colors that stray away from the traditional A&M maroon and tan.  Most of the hand drawn doodles are also links to other pages, one of them being “snapshots of campus” which is a different way to approach the stereotypical campus slideshow.

The look of the site is meant to be eye catching and fun for future and current students, and we are already getting a lot of positive buzz about it on facebook and twitter!

So check it out!
