The design is part of our drive to create a consistent experience across the range of City’s online products. We want users to enjoy complementary transitions between our most used online applications and websites and hope the new design will help users discover where they are within City’s digital landscape and be able to easily navigate across the breadth of our products.

Admittedly, creating a unified user experience is by no means an easy thing to achieve in a University environment – with a diverse (and constantly growing) range of online products, individual schools with their own brand considerations and priorities and separate teams responsible for each product.

However, by reaching out to teams and people across the University (big thank you to the Moodle team) we have made a small but important step in unifying the experience of City University London online.
