Sneak peek at new home page

By Gina Hills

newhome_top Check it out! Here’s a screenshot of a mockup of the top of the new UW home page, coming to a Web browser near you in 2010. Double click for a larger view.

Note the light tan horizontal bar at the very top. That’s the standard utility navigation. It has some of the most popular links on the UW site, all within easy reach. Below the “University of Washington” is a gray bar with user-based navigation. We’ll talk more about that a little later.

The five “feature stories” — the black boxes — will be interactive. You will be able to click on any one of them and it will come front and center. 

In the coming weeks and months we’ll share more info about how the page is going to work and highlight new features and enhancements.
