Netmagik developed a modern, user-friendly website for the University of Central Florida Research Lab.
Complex Adaptive Systems Research Laboratory needed to update its site to help better communicate the capabilities of their program to users and potential customers.
The goal was to add new research projects that are part of research themes, new and existing publications, faculty directory, information about Master of Science in Data Analytics, In The News section, careers, and contact information.
Netmagik developed a color scheme to match UCF main colors, organized beautiful image directory to highlight website sections. Custom post types and custom fields were used for Themes and Projects section, Publications, Faculty Profiles. Netmagik developed customized archive pages for Research Themes, Projects, Publications, People, and News/Events. Creative additions were integrated, such as animated text, transitions, gradients, and row separators.
Since a team of graduate students will be assisting in future updates, the user interface was designed to make it simple to add/update research papers, people profiles and news articles.
FAculty directory is separated by department, divided by graduate, undergraduate, and faculty.
Research projects are separated into separate categories, as Themes can contain multiple research projects.
