As Canada’s first school to join the Information School consortium, the iSchool at the University of Toronto is among the world’s leading information and knowledge management schools. With a focus on approaching education through the prism of people, information and technology, Wise & Hammer set to the task of creating a digital landscape where the school's innovative ideas were expertly communicated in an elegant, intuitive manner.
Researching a prospective school or program can be a daunting task. By mirroring the Faculty of Information's multidisciplinary approach, Wise & Hammer focused on combining copy with visual cues. Clean, elegant icons act as entry points, guiding the user's eye to the information that they seek, with a fully expandable microsite navigation. The result is a comprehensive resource for Future Students that informs instead of overwhelms.
As a school that is paving the way for information studies in the digital age, it was only natural for Wise & Hammer to create an equally functional mobile counterpart. With a simplified header with hamburger menu and footer, content area and social media bar, the user can navigate the content on mobile with ease.
As a conduit of information, the iSchool needed their website to be fully functional on all devices. Wise & Hammer developed and tested a responsive design that provides accessibility to every user, on every platform.
