Even though most of my posts lately have been about search, the team continues to work on other projects. We have two very large ones going right now, a complete overhaul of the tamutimes news site and a new version of the university website.
We have been given a deadline of having the TAMUtimes site ready before classes begin in the Fall, so we are starting the final push to get everything put together. Both the website and the email newsletter are being reworked and should be significant improvements on the current site.
The university website is currently scheduled to launch in January, before classes start for the Spring. We have been working and reworking content, and should have wireframes and color schemes ready in a couple of weeks. For those of you waiting on an announcement about web branding, that effort will probably pull considerable inspiration from the new design.
Along with the www.tamu.edu revision we are looking at how we can rebrand the visitors’ website and the virtual tours site into the same basic template. That will give our primary external sites a consistent look that is all university branded. With luck we will be able to launch these at the same time as the university site.
We also have several smaller projects on our plate that have to be worked in between these bigger ones. All in all we expect this trip through the redesign cycle to considerably elevate our collection of web properties.
