iFactory Designs and Develops the New University of Virginia Darden School of Business Website

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 22, 2010) -  iFactory, an award-winning digital media design and development firm, just launched the new University of Virginia Darden School of Business website.

The Darden School of Business improves society by developing principled leaders for the world of practical affairs. To accomplish this, the school embraces a rigorous and collaborative approach; creates knowledge that advances managerial practice; and fosters a diverse community that broadens understanding and elevates performance.

iFactory was charged with creating a website that reflects Darden's incredible reputation. The goal was to develop cutting-edge and relevant features, and integrate them into the larger picture.

"The new website gives Darden a 'front-door' that invites visitors in to experience the magic that makes us so special," said Maureen Wellen, Darden Executive Director, Strategic Initiatives and Website Project Manager. "The outstanding design and features that iFactory created gives visitors a real sense of Darden, and illustrates that we are a world-class business school."

Some of the various features that bring Darden to the world beyond its Grounds are the Darden Voices pages which use various models and widgets to highlight the blogs, podcasts, Facebook pages and Twitter feeds of current students, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as the unique Flash piece for the homepage, which evolved from Darden's "open door" policy.
