Fastspot Selected for Interactive Design Projects for Dickinson College and University of Puget Sound


Fastspot has been selected by Dickinson College and the University of Puget Sound to redesign each institution’s respective Website, according to Tracey Halvorsen, creative director and co-founder of the firm.

"The critical role that Websites play in the overall communications activities of colleges and universities has changed dramatically since most of them created their initial sites," commented Halvorsen. "For example, potential applicants to colleges and universities now typically first experience a school through its Website. Therefore, it's really important that the site engages, excites, and informs these applicants, as well as establishes a foundation of trust."

Fastspot is creating each site in collaboration with other marketing and communications efforts currently underway by each institution. "This team approach will ensure that their brand attributes are integrated through visual and message consistency," emphasized Halvorsen.

Dickinson College, a four-year liberal arts institution founded in 1783 in Carlisle, PA, has an enrollment of approximately 2,400 students. "We’ve been quite pleased in our work with Fastspot," said Paul Dempsey, Director of Electronic Communication at Dickinson. "They’ve provided a number of strong design options and have been very flexible with making things fit our unique needs. It's been a very effective collaboration."

The University of Puget Sound, with an enrollment of about 2,600 students, was founded in 1888 in Tacoma, WA.

Fastspot, with a recognized expertise in interactive communications for higher education institutions, recently completed a comprehensive interactive project for Bucknell University, in Lewisburg, PA.
