RIT Events Calendar

This project is a redesign of the current Rochester Institute of Technology Events Calendar that's online. For this project, I focused on creating a site that doesn't look like a traditional informative calendar. I used images to build excitement about the events, and balanced it with minimal text.

Current Problems
1) The Events Calendar does not have a obvious hierarchy to direct users and communicate importance.
2) There is little to no emotion or feel to the page, nothing captivating the users.
3) The page is not designed to be responsive.

The Objective
To successfully redesign the current RIT Events Calendar so that it clearly communicates the details of an event on multiple platforms.
The Goals
1) To organize the variety of diverse events in a logical way that captivates the user, and makes them eager to participate in the event, and be a part of the RIT community.
2) To design a responsive site for a browser, tablet (iPad) and mobile phone (iPhone 6).
3) Create a unique experience that displays detailed information quickly without having to load several pages in the process.
