A UTD template may be used on administrative sites or sites where the audience is primarily internal (i.e. current student, faculty or staff member). It may also be used where a less flashy presentation is desired. University Web Services makes a number of UTD templates available for schools, divisions and departments to use. If you would like assistance setting these templates up for your department, please contact Web Services.
UTD Template No. 1
In template no. 1, the UTD logo and the University's wordmark appear topmost. A Popular Links menu provides quick links to the University's most utilized pages. A horizontal bar is provided for primary navigation and the lefthand navigation is flexible to meet the needs of small- to medium-sized websites.
With the University's wordmark and logo at the top left, UTD template no. 2 is intended for small sites with less than 25 page. It provides a user-friendly top bar of the most commonly used pages on the University's websites. The lefthand column is reserved for local navigation.
UTD Template No. 3
Intended for large websites of 50 pages or more, template no. 3 incorporates the University's visual identity markers and reserves an area within the header for the department to clearly identify itself.
Custom Designed UTD Templates
Schools, divisions or departments with skilled web design personnel may choose to create their own designs within the University's visual identity framework. Custom designs are subject to the approval of the Office of Communications. It is recommended that departments considering custom designs notify University Web Services early in the planning process to ensure timely approvals.
The School of Management redesigned its website incorporating the University's visual identity markers. The project team met its goal of retaining a distinguishable look and feel for the school within the University's visual identity framework. This template is reserved for School of Management pages.
The graphic header used on Enrollment Services pages is another example of how to establish a departmental identity within the University's visual identity framework.
