Assiniboine Community College - Website Design by Modern Earth Web Design, Winnipeg ManitobaModern Earth Web Design recently completed the new web site for the Assiniboine Community College (ACC). It was a huge project for us that involved almost everyone on the team in some capacity. It was a truly collaborative effort between the Earthlings and the ACC project team over a 5 month period.

The site was a complete custom design, based on the existing color palette of the College. One key difference was ACC's choice to use photos of actual members of their students, faculty and parents - bringing a real sense of community to the website. Over 1,000 pages of content containing 4,000 hyperlinks were moved to the new site.

Every element of the new ACC website was chosen carefully to showcase all the college has to offer. The site's home page features a dynamic photo slider that highlights the various groups of people served by Assiniboine Community College - from new to current students, from parents to faculty. Interior pages were designed to highlight the various departments and programs - as well as including social media links, so visitors to the site can stay connected. The colourful News & Events section displays just how much is going on every day at the busy campus.

Modern Earth's Art Director, Barrett Telfer has this to say:

"It has been a privilege to have participated in this project giving ACC a new website to move into the decade. Both teams’ efforts have resulted in a website that is current, makes use of new technology, is easily updated and will be used by future and current students, staff, the community of Brandon and beyond for years to come."

Here is the Press Release sent out by the College:

ACC’s new website comes to life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Assiniboine Community College (ACC) is launching its fourth website in the history of the college.

The site has been in development for the past six months and is now ready for release to the general public. The launch of the new site reveals how personal and passionate the college is about the exceptional learning experiences we strive to provide our students with. Students and staff featured on the new site will be front and centre to help us bring it to life.

“In today’s digital world, it’s easy to purchase stock photographs that depict people in different places and situations, but we purposely chose to feature our own students, our own employees and community members that we have a connection with. Those using our website will be able to identify with the people that have already connected with us,” said Wanda Kurchaba, ACC Communications Officer. “We’re proud of our students and they are proud to be part of the college.”

The website was developed with the end user in mind, providing easy access to information on college programs, services and scholarships. The dynamic search function is easy to use and is more comprehensive than most other post-secondary websites. It allows prospective students to find the program or course that they're looking for with ease. The entire site was designed to allow the user to get the information they need in as little as three clicks.

Modern Earth, a well-known web design company out of Winnipeg, developed the website using modern technology and their vast expertise. As part of the design process, the company assisted in expanding ACC’s colour palette. The college's traditional colours, implemented in the 1980's (raspberry and purple), are still front and centre, but with three new accent colors we are able to energize and update our look.

“As a post-secondary institution, it’s important for us to have a website that speaks to our many different audiences and promotes programs that have made our institution so successful over the last 50 years,” said Mark Frison, ACC President.
