Schools’ Frontpage

As the web team putting on our thinking caps to redesign Vassar’s homepage, we looked at other schools to see what they are doing. The list below consists of the sites I like the most:

Bennington (artsy, elegant)
Brown (slick, organized)
BU (clean, simple)
St. John (neat typography)
MIT (changes daily, same as Vassar’s cuurent design)
New School (open, minimal)
Mills (tight, simple)
MICA (unique crops of photo)
Providence (consistent – one design for all)
Simmons (colorful, tight)
SFAI (contemporary, edgy)
SFCM (muted, nice type treatment)
OTIS (nice illustrations)
ACCD (dig the 4-column layout)
