Catawba Launches New Athletics Website
October 14, 2013
Catawba College announced the launch of a new and improved GoCatawbaIndians.com website, the official website of Catawba Athletics. The redesign process began in May and continued throughout the summer in tandem with the development of the new mobile app, which was released in early October.
The Office of Public Relations worked closely with the Athletics Department to assess the old website, build upon its strengths, and layer on desired improvements and additions.
"The visual design for the new athletics website was all about making things very simple and clean with lots of whitespace," said Maegen Worley, the College's web designer. "The goal was to showcase Catawba's excellent athletic program and teams with a new website worthy of any professional sports organization."
Worley added that the website's functionality and delivery of content were equally as important in order to provide fans with the latest news, videos, upcomingEvents, game recaps, team information, as well as attract new prospective student-athletes. Visitors to the newly redesigned website will be able to more quickly and intuitively access updates and program information.
Mobile device users will continue to automatically see the mobile version, but have the option of choosing to view the full site, which was designed with mobile users in mind. Fans on Kindle, Android, or Apple devices can download the Catawba Athletics mobile app as well.
A redesign of Catawba's main website, www.catawba.edu, is also underway.
