Responsive Design

A Modern Information Hub

The site acts as a hub of information for both prospective students, current students, and alumni.

NECAT needed a website that could act as a modern information hub for prospective students, prospective donors, current students, and alumni. With on-going events, information sessions, announcements, and news, NECAT had a lot of valuable content to present on their website, and we wanted to do it in a digestible, engaging way that utilized modern design and functionality standards.

Our design team also wanted to make sure the site was strongly branded -- we used their signature orange color as an ongoing design element, as well as the angular “slices” that separate each content section, made to imitate the cut of a knife.

“side•sea has a highly experienced team and they quickly knew how to translate our work and mission into a visually strong website. We really enjoyed working with their easy-going, yet professional team. They are responsive, friendly and committed to working with organizations trying to make a positive difference.”
