U Matter is a part of the UJ PsyCaD division, which helps students cope with the challenges of living and working in a diverse and high stress environment.
This is the 2nd site we completed for UJ, in collaboration with Student Brands.
This site was an interesting challenge, it required a complete overhaul of the design and structure of an existing website, to create something with a far superior aesthetic, while maintaining access to all of the available content of the previous site.
In addition, this site works on a schedule, with pre-defined content being released on a monthly basis throughout the year.
The site is one of the few to feature a left hand side bar navigation, we did it this way to better manage the large quantity of content available on the site while keeping the main content area neat. Ther site also features a high contrast mode, a grayscale mode and a zoom mode for visually impaired users.
Of course, for this site, the mobile experience was just as important as the desktop one, so this site is fully responsive and all content is available on all devices.
