KENT STATE ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT 2015
Kent State Intercollegiate Athletics
IdeaBase was brought on board for the second year in a row to develop and design Kent State University Athletics’ year-in-review/annual report.
The interactive report is designed in HTML/CSS and this year features a single-page design (with supplemental article pages). The design is composed of photos, text and custom icons that match the university’s blue and gold branding.
We went through a process of discovery, content gathering, design/architecture and development over a period of five months.
From a technical perspective, the site utilizes:
- Jekyll, a static site generator that doesn’t require a full content management system
- Grunt for task running, including image resizing, browser refreshing and code compiling
- SASS for writing CSS for efficiency
- CSS animations
The site launched in September 2015.
