Higher Education Website Design & Development

Drupal for Higher Education

Your website takes on a multitude of roles for your higher education institution. To achieve sustained success, it needs to be built on a platform that not only meets your current needs but can adapt and grow with your institution. In our experience, Drupal is a leading CMS for higher education websites, consistently meeting and exceeding our clients' expectations.

The open-source Drupal-powered solutions we develop are robust enough to meet the most sophisticated marketing objectives. But they’re also flexible and scalable enough to meet you where you are — and take you where you want to go. We aim to help institutions like yours create compelling websites that serve your goals today and in the future.

Our clients come first.

We consider our greatest business successes to be, not only the efficacy of our services but the positive relationships we’ve built with our clients as well. What sets ImageX apart from other agencies, is that our team is composed of confident and independent individuals who also understand the power of synergy. Our team delivers results, keeps their promises, and helps you reach your overarching business goals.

Building a brand for Ashland University

We delivered a university website design and digital property that reflected the true student experience in order to increase enrollment inquiries, applications, and the acceptance of enrollment commitments.

In terms of quantifiable results, Ashland compared their web analytics period from December 13 - January 10, 2022 to that of this year and saw:

  • Organic search traffic increased by 230%
  • Referral traffic increased by 282%
  • Average engagement time per session increased by 8%
  • Number of engaged sessions per user increased by 16%

With all the strength that ImageX brought to the project, it really went so smoothly and I was so relieved to get a quality result for our website.

User-centered redesign for EVC

Evergreen Valley College was struggling with a Sharepoint-based website that was cumbersome for both users and editors. The redesign focused on a simple, appealing mobile-first design, specifically tailored for effective web design for colleges.

We worked with EVC for over eight months, facilitating multiple listening sessions with staff, students and other stakeholders. We also helped directly in rewriting content.

The redesigned website is not only a better representation of the brand but also includes improvements to analytics tracking and overall user experience. Since the site was launched at the end of August 2021, feedback from both stakeholders and users has been uniformly positive.
