The purpose of this page is to help give you an idea of all of the different ways we can layout content on your site. We use a Panel Concept, and you’ll be able to view the various options below.
Don’t worry; we will take care of ensuring your new site is both visually attractive and professional. This area is just a hub to help you during your content creation process. If you have any questions or need a little direction feel free to reach out to your account manager, and they will be able to help walk you through the process!
Panel 1: Standard Panel
Our Standard Panel is one of the most diverse panel options we have available. It can be used to create buttons or links, upload PDF’s and supporting documents or any other information you’d like to place here.
The formatting options available here are also complex. We will upload all of the options so that it’s easy for you to use when you’re updating all of your own content.
Panel 2: Promo Boxes
Panel 3: Mini Promo Boxes
Panel 4: Call to Action
Panel 5: Standard Panel With Tabs
Tab One Content
The standard panel tab concept was created to help our users split up content while keeping the page visually enjoyable for visitors.
- You can place in bullet points
- Attach photos and videos
- Create a table for information
The button tab names can be adjusted, so if you have a wide variety of services your company offers you can place it all on one page and users can easily browse through that information.
Tab Two Content
They can be utilized in a multitude of ways and can also be customized to fit your brand!
As displayed below, embedding a picture or video is no problem at all and can be a powerful tool to help compliment your content. As with a standard panel adding in links, buttons or directing the user to find out more information is all possible in this panel.
Panel 6: Parallax Panel Insert
This is a Parallax Panel!
This panel type should be reserved for a short eye catching blurb of information. As you can see, the words stay in place while the image scrolls behind it. We recommend around 85 - 100 characters in this section if possible. If you need assistance with a background image feel free to reach out to your account manager and they can help you choose one.
Another great addition is that the parallax panel allows for a button which can be a URL link, a phone number or email. Keep this in mind as it’s great for helping with lead generation!
Panel 7: Side by Side (Image)
A Short Subtitle Goes Here!
Here is an example of a Side by Side panel with an image on the right!
They are a great tool that can be used to guide the users attention.
You can place information here and also pair it with a relevant picture to display your information.
Panel 8: Side by Side (Video)
A Short Subtitle Goes Here!
Here is another example of a Side by Side but this time with a video on the left hand side!
You can envision a similar concept as above, but this time you can place a relevant YouTube or Vimeo video here to help users understand the point you are making.

Welcoming Newcomers Program - Donation Drive
We partnered with the ‘Welcoming Newcomers program’ at the University of Alberta to collect items for 6 refugee students who came to the U of A mid-December 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. These students were recipients of the David Turpin and Suromitra Sanatani Award for Refugees and Displaced Persons, which is facilitated by the UAI’s Global Education Program (Welcoming Newcomers Program).
Some background on the students:
All of these refugee students came from refugee camps in Africa - five from camps in Kenya
and one from Malawi. Originally the students come from Somalia, South Sudan, and the Congo. More
information on the United Nations Refugee Agency, UNHCR’s, work in refugee camps in Kenya can be found here.
Originally these students would have arrived in August 2020, however with the omnipresent pandemic, their arrival
was delayed and they needed to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine isolation period prior to moving into their
residence housing in the new year.
How we were able to help?
Alumni donated 3 Jackets, kitchen supplies (dishes, Tupperware, small kitchen processor), multiple blankets & towels, men’s clothing, toques.
