The Skidaway Institute of Oceanography (SKIO) is a research and training institution nestled along the marshy banks of the Skidaway River outside of Savannah. SKIO is part of the University of Georgia, with state-of-the-art research laboratories and instrumentation, and a 92-foot Research Vessel serving faculty, undergraduate and graduate students from UGA and all over the world.
A distinguished research facility needs a distinguished website - nothing gimmicky or trendy, but a site that is appealing, easy to navigate, professional and clean.
The new SKIO website creates visual appeal with photography from SKIO's beautiful campus, and utilizes a blue color pallette and wave graphics to reflect the institute's focus on the ocean world. The main site content is divided into the research center's four disciplinary areas, allowing prospective and current students to dig in deeper to the study area of their choice. Faculty members have their own bio pages as well as lab pages, and each faculty member can log on to the site and add information, files, videos and photos for students to access at anytime. The new site is powered by the content management system WordPress, which means administrators can also easily add news releases, publications and other information, keeping site content fresh and up to date.
As UGA alumni and ocean lovers here at Heideldesign, we were excited to partner with the Skidaway Institute. Congratulations to SKIO on the successful launch!
