The purpose of the Columbia School of the Arts site is twofold: to provide course information, and to showcase student and alumni art. We wanted the site to be easily navigable while still feeling immersive. We decided upon a side navigation that stays fixed to the side of the browser while content scrolls by to promote ease of navigation.
This site is built on drupal with a focus on complete flexibility for the administrators at SoA. I worked extensively with our strategy team to define an array of modules that would meet all of the client’s content needs. I then designed instances for each module that would account for their placement in any area of the page.
The side-navigation gives the site additional consistency across desktop and mobile.
