The Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study: WordPress Development Project

Congratulations on your new web space, SASS!

The Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study (SASS), founded in 1911, encourages research and instruction about Nordic countries, in North America and around the world. In addition to encouraging scholarly pursuits, the Society also wants to foster closer relations between people interested in Nordic culture and history.

With these goals in mind, Reify created a site for SASS that is equal parts repository, scholarly home, and meeting place. The site engages visitors with opportunities to learn about the Nordic countries’ culture, beauty, and scholarship. But just as important, the site engages visitors with one another.

Highlights of the SASS WordPress Development Project

CLEAN, ENGAGING WEBSITE DESIGN

The SASS website has a fresh, playful feel, thanks to the primary colors of the Nordic flags. The colors pop against the white background, highlighting the navigational elements and the Society’s new logo, also created by Reify. Top level organization and a clickable slider make it easy for site visitors to interact immediately with content.

 

EASY WEBSITE UPDATES

The site is powered by WordPress, so SASS officers can easily manage its elements, even without prior web-editing experience. This means the site will stay up to date, offering visitors the latest information and opportunities.

The site’s blog feature offers managers a way to share that information in a quick, newsy format, right from the homepage.

INTIMATE SPACE FOR MEMBERS

The site features a password-protected, members-only section that includes a directory and member profiles. This allows SASS members to stay in touch and share scholarly resources in a secure environment.

The members-only section also includes a syllabus repository, where teachers of Scandinavian Studies can share class documents and benefit from one another’s ideas.

“The site that Reify Media created has become, in a very short time, a central tool in our far-flung society and one that members visit frequently, often daily.”
— Past-President of SASS, Tom DuBois

A secure section with useful information and networking opportunities keeps members coming back to the site regularly.

MOBILE RESPONSIVE WORDPRESS DESIGN

Since many visitors will arrive at the site while on the go, the new SASS website features a mobile responsive design, adapting screen size for computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

An easy search feature makes the entirety of the site’s public content available to users, while maintaining a clean aesthetic.

“We needed a product that would look good on a small device as well as on a big desktop.”
— Past-President of SASS, Tom DuBois

Our Client’s Perspective

We appreciated this opportunity to work with SASS and want to thank Past President Tom DuBois for sharing a testimonial about the project.

“Reify delivered on all its promises and then some. The Reify staff answered our questions promptly, kept on schedule, and provided training that was comprehensible and effective for even our most technophobic members. We would recommend Reify to any organization or individual wanting to obtain a very professional and manageable website that can be easily maintained and updated.”
— Past-President of SASS, Tom DuBois
