The University of Chicago is launching a new design for UChicago News, bringing together the latest in digital media, audience engagement and mobile design to tell the story of the University.
The redesigned news.uchicago.edu delivers an immersive experience that elevates digital storytelling and encourages exploration of the ideas, people and events that define UChicago. Digital design firm IfThen led the project, building on its past work with such news and content providers as National Geographic, the Weather Channel and NBC Sports.
“UChicago News is built to match the deep and diverse story of the University, bringing to higher education the best of what we’ve learned from leading news and content sites. The new design meets people on whatever device they prefer and encourages them to explore and learn more about UChicago in a way that’s engaging, immersive and intuitive,” said Paul M. Rand, Vice President for Communications at the University.
