Need to Know

  • George Brown’s digital experience serves a broad spectrum of post-secondary education audiences.
  • Its CMS accumulated a wealth of information, but its site architecture and navigation made accessing it difficult. 
  • Northern executed a redesign of George Brown College’s digital experience using the latest version of the Drupal CMS.

The Client

George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario, is one of Canada’s most in-demand colleges, serving 25,000 full-time students, 68,000 continuing education learners, and 2,000 international students. 

The Brief

Northern’s goal was to facilitate greater web property distribution to make George Brown’s sub-properties easily discoverable from their primary digital experience. Northern achieved this by designing new reusable web components and implementing intuitive design for sub-properties like the intranet (Insite), the Library (LLC), and the IELTS Test Centre (a public-facing testing company within George Brown).
