PROJECT GOAL The main goal of this project is to design a communications portal for all design students at UNL. This site should be a one stop source for: jobs, internships, news, events, resources and ideally to foster a design community. The design should consider the needs, wants, and limitations of the people who will use the end product, and incorporate this understanding into a User Centered Design.
