Monaghan is a Institute that was founded in 1992. Monaghan Institute is a newly built Further Education College in Monaghan Town with over 40 PLC courses for School Leavers and Mature Students. All courses are state funded. The Institute offers a wide range of further education and training (FET) courses. Each course is specifically designed for employment – the balance between theoretical and practical study is decided with the job-market firmly in mind.
CDG were challenged to redesign the Monaghan Institute website for the students, staffs and admin alike, The previous build of the website was clunky and outdated. They needed a brand new site to showcase how they are a leading educational institute. We worked with Monaghan Institute to ensure both Staff and Students could find what they were looking for and fast!
CDG studied the Institute and its services in order to deliver the best experience possible and reach the best result. Our goal was to give a distinctive, interactive and slick website that focuses on its users. From our analysis of the previous website, we started developing wireframes and prototypes that helped create a better examination for the final result.
In the end we designed an agile, user friendly and responsive website based of our user research. Each section is clearly defined, and the user-journey has been mapped and refined extensively, resulting in a user-friendly and beautiful website that positions MI head and shoulders above their competition.
We looked closely at common user flows to ensure a user experience that was as seamless and efficient as possible. All in a modern, elegant and simple interface. As a result the traffic up 300% in less than 4 weeks.
CDG was awarded the Best in Universal Design Award for Monaghan Institute website at the IIA Net Visionary Awards 2017.
