The Common Application for College

Drupal, Responsive, Web Development

About: The Common Application is used by students, teachers and counselors alike to be a one stop shop about learning, preparing, and applying for college. They wanted a website that displayed information in both an at a glance view as well as an indepth view depening on the target audience. Through deep user testing, the site was designed to appeal visually to students but display enough information to appeal to educators. The website was built to be fully responsive and cross-browser utilizing Drupal CMS, while being lightweight and flexible enough to handle 80,000+ unique page viewers a day during the application season. Built with page templates and numerous flexible components, the website allowed for pages to be completely custom depending on what content wanted to be shown.
