Northland International Launches

This past Tuesday Northland Baptist Bible College went through an enormous rebranding process by changing their name, logo and website to Northland International University. The announcement was made by Northland President Matt Olsen and Northland Chancellor Les Ollila during the week-long Missions Conference.

Northland International University was founded in 1976 and exists to train pastors, teachers, missionaries and godly laymen of tomorrow. Northland is located in Dunbar, Wisconsin, and enrolls 650 undergraduates and 100 graduate students, representing 45 states and 11 foreign countries.

 

“Northland is responding to what’s happening around the globe today,” said Ollila. “Northland International University is our answer to providing the necessary biblical and practical training and resources to local churches and Christians worldwide as they seek to fulfill the Great Commission in today’s exciting global culture.”

 

The website was designed and developed by Jackson-Dawson on an incredibly short time line, and the process of updating much of the site’s content continues. The old website was spread across numerous sub domains making the information hard to find and not as user-friendly as it could have been.

Jackson-Dawson revamped the new website with an HTML/CSS framework custom to the needs of the Northland web team. Combining CSS, Javascript and Flash, JD was able to build the structure with standards-based and accessible markup and style.
