With the help of Baltimore integrated advertising and design agency, idfive, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy has launched a new website to better serve and engage the many audiences it serves. Strategically created to align the School’s offline and online experiences, the site now features a simple, modern design that honors the School’s long tradition of research, discovery, practice, and service.
The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy leads pharmacy education, scientific discovery, patient care, and community engagement in the state of Maryland and beyond. The site’s strategy, design, and information architecture supports these attributes.
The site’s information architecture follows higher-education conventions while its bold, contemporary design accents the School’s main points of differentiation. It also employs best practice SEO, responsive design, and usability techniques to enhance the user experience on all platforms and devices.

Eddington, PhD, FAAPS, FCP, Professor and Dean of the School of Pharmacy.
“We gravitated to idfive’s research-based approach,” added Shannon Tucker, the School’s Assistant Dean of Instructional Technology. “Their focus on user-centered research provided us with a solid foundation to make strategic decisions that provide immediate and long-term benefits .”
