“It is important for universities to stay on top of emerging technologies to help streamline their registration processes,” say Arlene Santos, founder and Creative Director at AG Design Group. “Most academic organizations shy away from upgrading their system, but with our comprehensive database technology, the transition can be accomplished within a reasonable amount of time, while also enhancing website usability and aesthetics. We were excited to have worked with UC Berkeley and look forward to working with more of their departments in the future.”
AG Design Group is a Walnut Creek based firm that specializes in developing business identity and branding. Their modern design styles and techniques have won them several awards. Their innovative style is just the tip of the iceberg. AG Design Group pairs smart design with custom-built web databases and Content Management Systems (CMS). It was these qualities that drew the Rhetoric Department to seek them out.
While functionality and design were important factors, perhaps what the Rhetoric Department valued most, was the ability to easily update content and features on their own. Words are the Rhetoric Department’s strength, and it was important that they be able to manipulate content. With AG Design Group’s custom developed databases and Content Management System, the Rhetoric Department can easily make changes, updates and additions without being tech savvy. With AG Design’s CMS, changing the navigation menu, adding web pages and editing course listings can be completed quickly and easily.
The new website showcases a very Greek, classical style, much like the UC Berkeley campus itself. Navigating the site is simple and information is organized and archived clearly. Both beautiful and functional, the website serves as a resource for both Rhetoric students and faculty alike.
