About Duke's home page
Duke University launched the current version of its home page in October 2009, following an extensive redesign process. A blog tracked the progress of the project and provides useful background about it. Previous versions of the site appeared in
Duke’s Office of News and Communications and Duke Web Services (formerly Blackwell Interactive) took the lead in developing the current version, in close collaboration with other campus groups. Viget Labs, a local design firm, assisted with part of the project.
The web team has developed a set of free tools to help other members of the Duke community create or modify their sites to reflect the "look and feel" of the university’s home page. These tools include messaging and style guidelines, color palettes, typefaces, Web templates and information about using the “Duke brand bar.” For more information, please consult the online style guide or contact Duke Web Services.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions.
