NMC Launches New Website for Rhodes

New Media Campaigns is pleased to announce the re-launch of the site for The Rhodes Scholarships, an international graduate scholarship program.  NMC designed and developed the previous Rhodes site on their original Content Management System, which has since been rebuilt and redesigned.  The upgraded version, HiFi, offers improved design, usability and features.

As Rhodes continued to build out the site since the first launch, NMC felt it was time for an upgrade to save the Rhodes staff time and unnecessary stress.  The Rhodes House uses the website as their primary tool to connect with former scholars, inform and encourage potential applicants, and publicize events. Since the Rhodes team updates the site with new content on a regular basis, HiFi’s user-friendly, modern user interface was a much better solution. 

The design remained generally the same on the front-end as the custom design NMC did in 2010 (with some minor improvements.)  The most significant difference between the old site and the new are the features on HiFi, which allow Rhodes to take their site to the next level in efficiency and organization. 

HiFi offers multimedia galleries and a far more intuitive form builder, which makes the Rhodes e-News sign-up feature much more powerful.  The organization flexibility of HiFi will also aid Rhodes in expanding their site with a unique format hassle-free.  

In addition to moving over the existing content, design, and features, NMC reviewed the code to ensure it was up to current-day standards.  NMC is confident that the upgrade to HiFi will ensure success in maintaining and enhancing Rhodes’ attractive online presence.
