Redesigned website based on Ellucian's Degree Works. The previous interface was both visually and functionally confusing due to the design as well as the prolific/redundant amount of information. User research and information consolidation were performed in the early stages to tighten up the sitemap and make it as user-friendly as possible. Personas and scenarios were generated in order to make the user flow more accurate. The final design is minimal and straightforward. Montclair State University's branding was kept in mind and implemented throughout the entire process.
