A tradition, a trust
Grady College unveils new Centennial website
Interactivity, flow and Grady pride are the hallmarks of a new website celebrating the Centennial Celebration of the College. The new site, Grady100.uga.edu, was designed as a generous gift-in-kind by Red Clay Interactive.
"Grady College's stunning new Centennial pages are a testament to the loyalty and skill of our alumni base and the professionalism of our staff," commented Charles Davis, dean of Grady College. "It all started when Red Clay asked the best question a college can hear: "How can we help?" and we formed a partnership between Red Clay Interactive and our communications team. Grady College alumni working side by side with Grady staff, embodies the spirit of the Centennial."
The website is designed in two phases. The first phase includes details about Grady's Centennial events, a social media aggregator, areas where alumni and friends can submit written memories and photographs, and sponsorship information. The second phase, expected to launch by the beginning of 2015, will include a timeline of historical milestones and areas of archive photos, stories and videos.
Design of the site was carefully considered, right down to using Rockwell font, which is just shy of 100 years old, as well as Proxima Nova, a sans serif font that is newer. The site also employs the use of Parallax movement, which features the appearance of images and text that are stacked to create the illusion of each being on a different plane.
