Part of The Well’s mission is to announce events and motivate people to sign up for classes, so we wanted to give the site the structural feel of a bulletin board. This meant displaying a myriad of points of engagement just like you’d see on a wall covered with flyers. We added a dynamic three-item newsfeed on the homepage and an ever-refreshing Twitter feed. With so much revolving information, users are likely to see something new they didn’t previously know was available.
The on-the-go bulletin board is meant to provide a simple information display for the student walking across the quad with an armful of books or someone in the middle of a workout at The Well, whether on a computer, tablet, or phone.
