BFA’s Website is Launched!


BFA's Website is Launched!

The new website for the school is now officially launched! An announcement was made to the student body before school on Monday. I say it’s about time. Dani and I are excited that it’s live. Dani, because now I will be at home more.  🙂 And myself because now I feel like I have something to show for my time here. There’s still plenty that needs to be done, but it’s a great starting point. And I am hopeful that it will improve BFA’s ability to communicate.

Check it out at bfacademy.com. And feel free to let me know what you think.

A Few Snapshots

  • Coming Soon (home page advertisement)
  • Application page – link »
  • News page – link »

Designed for the weekend before the launch. It's what was shown instead of the homepage.

This is the new designed application page. The plan was to make it easier to use and to find the correct applications.

The new layout for the news page. This area is being developed, and exciting additions are coming in the next few months.

Some Exciting Features

There are now clear sections to feature documents for download.

The new and improved staff profile page. Includes easy category viewing and improved readability.

A dynamic contact request form. The form has specific links and descriptions depending on the department chosen.

There is much more content accessible directly from the website. No more having to download pdfs.

There's a new Showcase page that will house galleries and other media related to new media at the school.

A much more visual dorm page. And there are some really helpful additions like, date updated and contact information.

    Looks awesome, Israel. It’s been fun listening-in to the chatter around campus after the announcement… all positive feedback! My students were excitingly checking out the website before design class and were pretty pleased with what they saw : )

      Glad to hear that the students are liking it! I hope to be able to add more content for current and future students. It’s currently pretty lacking.

    There is really no comparison. It is quite easy to use. Mission accomplished. Looks very up to date.
