Elevating Digital Experiences for The Highest of Higher Education

Our Responsibilities:

  • Experience Design
  • Graphic Design
  • Publishing System

The Stanford University School of Humanities & Sciences approached Happy Cog with a problem: H&S comprises 80% of all undergraduate degrees awarded at Stanford and houses some of the most creative and influential departments in the University, but its web presence was outdated and didn’t compete. Together with the team at Stanford, Happy Cog crafted a new user experience centered around the school’s core themes: creativity, compassion, discovery, and inspiration.

Within that experience, Happy Cog helped shape the strategy behind a series of short video documentaries for the website focused on the university’s core themes. The site also offers a successful user experience to internal content managers.

Happy Cog worked closely with Stanford to ensure the experience of updating and maintaining the website was simple and intuitive, allowing a wide variety of content producers and managers to easily pull in photography and videos from outside sources.
