Our 5th project with Squared Design Labs (Los Angeles, CA) for the University of Maryland's: Maryland Architecture, Planning and Preservation (MAPP) department.
As always with Squared, a very slick design which makes this site certainly stand out from the 100's of run of the mill boring university sites out there today.
The multi-paned slide show home page shown above is only 1 of many possible home page layouts that can be selected by the webmaster with only a few mouse clicks. This is accomplished with Panels and its In-place Editor combined with custom enhancements from LiquidCMS to make this incredibliy simple for the site maintainers to manage.
Organic Groups is at the heart of this project. It allows for specific programs within the department to have their own content, editors, faculty, styling, etc.. A complex module for many firms to manage, prevents OG from being used on many projects that require it. LiquidCMS also provided a couple custom OG modules to streamline some common OG admin tasks.
