Tailgating Website Update

July 29th, 2013 by tamuwebmaster


Football season is right around the corner, and nothing screams football like tailgating. Being in the SEC brings a whole new audience to our campus, so what better time than our second season to update the tailgating website.

We incorporated the same layout as the visit family of sites, but with a slightly different design. The new tailgating site has a different look to match the tailgating audience; we incorporated a turf background surrounded by blue skies and clouds and a slide show of past tailgating events to bring in the spirit of football season.  The three-column navigation throughout the site makes it easier for users to find information.

The inner pages have a cleaner layout with a more visible navigation to make it easier to navigate from one page to another.  Take a look and let us know if you have any comments.

Gig ‘em!

  1. Looks great Rebecca!

    The only thing I would suggest is increasing the opacity of the welcome text background a bit. My eyes combine the yard lines in the background with the text, making it a bit difficult to read.

  3. Leo,
    Thank you for your comment. I increased the opacity on the welcome text. Hope this is a little better.
