Client: Autónoma de Occidente University
My role: UX designer, interface designer, frontend developer
The university faces a process of changing their educational model, needs to communicate and support the entire academic community. How to reduce the friction produced by the change of the educational model to students? With a new portal as an indispensable communication tool in the midst of a process of technological and pedagogical change within the university.
To start, why?
The ICT Innovation Center was a nascent office within the Autónoma de Occidente University; it would be in charge of structuring all the processes of technological appropriation within the campus, education mediated by information technologies and promoting the new pedagogical methodologies of the university.
Understanding users needs
The CIT should create a communication channel and support the student
community in the use of all the technological tools they would use on campus.
They were looking for the best way to make their official presentation within
the university, trying to keep it informed and trained according to the
guidelines established by the academic vice-rectory.
We decided to create a brand that generates connections mediated by
technology among its principal actors. This brand had to have a communication
channel suitable for internal and external audiences, as well as support all
the virtual teaching platforms inflexible schedules.

User centered design
This site was built with WordPress uses a responsive grid of 12 columns based on Sussy, the styles developed in SASS and all its icons constructed in SVG.
For each section, personalized contents and personalized query were made
to generate the respective views with the necessary content type.
It has a Zopin Chat plugin to provide all the offline support and to be
able to track all the requirements of the students.
With this project, I delved into the development of brands, including
the use of grids for the development of responsive websites and I began to
learn how to make modifications in the WordPress backend.
