Creighton Hero

Creighton University

And social justice for all.

The Challenge

The Opportunity

Creighton University is committed to a student-focused, Jesuit education. And to social justice. Our redesign and development of their main .edu—with its foundation in a master brand we helped to expand on and extend the life of—enables campus communicators to tell a more unique and comprehensive story, while also providing a more consistent and user-friendly web experience, including clear and reliable information pathways that direct visitors to fresh and focused content. Throughout the process, we were committed to exceeding accessibility standards to ensure universal access, despite device type, to the entirety of the website and its content.

Brand Statement

The Solution

Creighton University attracts students from around the world, each possessing a wide variety of interests and personal and professional goals. The new brand communicates to prospective students, the website’s primary audience: Whatever you do best, do it justice.

To do the Creighton website justice, we leaned into technology, governance, structure, content strategy, UI/UX, and the user experience.
