When to Use the Coordinated UW Look and Feel
The UW Home Page is the window to University of Washington information. Much of
that information is presented on pages that use a coordinated look and feel.
By using a coordinated look and feel, we gain:
- A consistent style that distinguishes the
as UW authentic--conveys credibility, reliability and authority.
- A signal that the pages are from the central business units of the
- Consistent navigation conventions.
that take care of the page design and free you to think about your content
and the needs of your audience.
- A stable server environment that is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week and supports the latest web technologies.
The coordinated look and feel is used on the following:
- Topically-organized portals that provide consistent, structured access to administrative information, for example:
- Payroll Gateway
- Researcher's Guide
- Procedural information that is user-centered and task-oriented, and typically answers the questions
"How do I do...?, How do I get...?, Where do I find...?, What is needed for...?, What are the rules about...?", etc. For example:
- Grant Closing Process
- Supporting documents for administrative procedures that include background information, forms, policies, faqs, glossaries, where and when services are provided, etc.:
- Payroll Forms
- UW policies:
- Grants Information
- General Records Retention Schedule
