Milwaukee, WI–The Milwaukee Admirals are pleased to unveil phase one of the relaunch of the team's official website, milwaukeeadmirals.com. Under the direction of head designer Bernard Gomez and head engineer Tom Duffey, the Admirals collaborated with website design and management company Tech by Design of Milwaukee on the new site.
“The new milwaukeeadmirals.com gives our fans an advanced multimedia experience in an entertaining and intuitive way that will allow them to continue to sow their passion for Admirals hockey,” said Admirals President Jon Greenberg. “Tech by Design is on the cutting edge when it comes to technology on the web and they have helped to integrate many new features onto our new site that will enhance user experience.”
Phase one of the relaunch includes a complete overhaul of the look of the website. When landing on the homepage, users will be greeted with a featured news area that is highlighted by a 1200 by 500 pixel picture associated with five separate stories and up to four accompanying links to direct fans to that story and other related items of interest. The site also includes a revamp of the popular In the Crease blog area and a new schedule page that will give fans access to promotions and ticket special with a simple roll over of the mouse on a given date.
Milwaukeeadmirals.com features a new navigation bar that includes drop down menus for easier navigation as well as content groups with switchable tabs that will show the content of a selected tab, while hiding other information behind it. An interactive fan poll is also a new feature of the site and the first poll will allow fans to select one of the Admirals’ bobblehead giveaways for the 2009-10 season. Each page of the new site is also available in an RSS Feed as well as a printable version.
Phase two of the relaunch, which comes on October 1st, will introduce a complete makeover of Admirals TV that will allow fans to search for highlight videos by either player or game and it will allow fans to watch videos in-line in the featured news area on the homepage. In addition, a new photo gallery will be featured to give fans more access to the team’s tremendous photography. Comment areas for each news article and more games will also be added in phase two of the relaunch.
