Admission Website Honored as "Site of the Day"
The highly interactive website, at http://admission.hartford.edu, was designed and produced by Visual Concepts Inc. of Windsor, Conn. The account manager for the project, Rob Blanchard, is a University of Hartford alumnus.
Macromedia Corporation, the maker of the popular web design software Flash®, gives the “Site of the Day” award to recognize organizations with innovative websites that effectively achieve their communication goals in highly creative and interactive ways.
Visual Concepts Inc. used Macromedia Flash MX 2004 to redesign the front-end experience for the University of Hartford’s admission website. The admission office is now able to collect data from potential students and present visitors with a dynamic way of experiencing the various aspects of the Hartford campus and student life.
