LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore is a leading tertiary institution in cutting edge contemporary arts and design education and practice.

Project Problem statement

Legacy sites with non-responsive dated aesthetics and organically grown content, need to be brought up to modern standards of design and content management.
They also needed an upgrade to the career services, and student portfolio showcase.

What We Did

Created a brand new responsive outreach website with a complex and highly designed art college worthy front end. It had a large body of hard to access content, that was restructured to be more accessible presenting them in relevant contexts.
Created a new exclusive job portal and student portfolio showcase which helps LASALLE to build strong networks across the creative industries and connect employers with their students and graduates.

Solution Highlights

  • Migrated large volume of content from legacy CMS to Drupal, while preserving content relationships and semantic structure.
  • Migrated content ownership and security roles for students, faculty, industry partners etc. across disparate systems.
  • Dynamic image processing using SVG masks etc. implemented as a no brainer solution for content authors.
  • Information architecture to support relationships between programs, schools, faculty, awards, events etc with tens of thousands of content objects.
  • Single Sign-On support for the website with their enterprise identity system
  • Customised authoring tools and workflows for students and faculty collaboration.
