DIT Hothouse

A new site for a cutting edge Dublin university Technology Transfer Office

A university innovation and technology transfer office in the heart of Dublin city, DIT Hothouse offers guidance, funding and opportunity to entrepeneurs, investors and industry leaders. They required a complete overhaul of their existing website which involved an extensive review of the sitemap and content and a fresh new look to reflect their position as a leading provider and champion of exciting new technologies.

Landing page and internal page template

The site layout utilises the Hothouse brand colours as a colour coding system to aid navigation. The option to make an enquiry appears on almost every page to ensure interested parties can easily make contact. I created a variety of templates to be used by DIT Hothouse across the site for various pages such as FAQs, Success Stories and Current Companies.

New colour palette

A versatile colour palette was established to complement the existing DIT Hothouse identity.

UI elements

A suite of UI elements were created to be used across the site.

Mobile version with two tier navigation system

Fully responsive, the mobile navigation approach required extensive research and testing, due to the depth of the site. To aid the user, two layers of navigation are visible on the mobile version at all times – with the exception of the home page where it is not required.
