I’ve been on contract working as webmaster for Umpqua Community College for quite a while now and one of the things they asked me to do was to take their Accreditation blog and clean it up. Before I got to it it was a stock WordPress theme and didn’t look anything like UCC’s website. The only way to tell it was UCC’s was that it said so in the header. No logo, no nothing.
I found a theme that would let us upload a full page photo to display behind the content. I was able to adjust the colors of the theme to match UCC’s standards and reorganized the whole site so it flows and makes sense now.
I think it came out great. Could probably use a better photo for the background, but anyone who has ever been there will recognize the fountain on the right side.
The best part is that UCC is thrilled with it. Very professional and lets the world see them that way.
If you have a website that’s not putting your best foot forward, let me know. I can help you too.
