Services: Website Design & Development

The Challenge: Technical standards help develop and advance global technology, and our client IEEE is responsible for a large number of the standards in the electrical engineering world. For this new site they wanted to develop a hub for information on standards and standards education. This one-stop shop would provide information on courses and workshops available on how to create standards, a library of existing standards, and other available content types such as news, webinars, and videos.

The IEEE Standards University website.

Our Approach: D2 designed and developed a website with a simple to use navigation and structure that allows users to easily find their way to the standards content they are seeking. Since our client would be handling all publishing for the website, we created templated pages in a WordPress site that is easy to update and manage.

The IEEE Standards University website adapts to fit different device screen sizes.
As part of branding, we developed an official color scheme for use on the website.
Wireframes help give clients a feel for how the site will look and act before design is complete.

The Result: The clean, image-oriented IEEE Standards University website is responsive, retaining all functionality on mobile and tablet. Our homepage design showcases topics and categories of significant interest. The search tool allows users to quickly find articles, courses, and videos of interest. Filtering tools also enable users to quickly access the content they are looking for. This growing library is gaining momentum as a go-to standards resource.
