Web Design

College Admissions Program

IAA created a new program focused on preparing students for college admissions. They called it the College Admissions Program or CAP. They approached me and asked if I can lead the development of their online presence. We agreed on a project to create a website to convey what the program is all about.

I learned that they have developed their previous websites using Squarespace. After learning what they wanted from the website, I gave them an option to either stay with Squarespace or use a new CMS, preferably something more sophisticated such as WordPress. They opted to using WordPress after carefully reviewing the pros and cons of both platforms.

As a result, we developed a website that showcases what they offer to students in the US and China. I designed the website to accommodate levels of information for college applicants, consultants, and partnering companies.
