Quinnipiac University hired Global digital experience design agency, Critical Mass, to deliver a new Quinnipiac.edu experience that exemplifies the university’s commitment to excellence while serving its audiences through simple and intuitive interactions across devices. In addition, the partnership includes a major platform consolidation (Adobe Experience Manager).
Quinnipiac consistently ranks among the top regional universities in the North in U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” issue and, in 2014, was named top up-and‐coming school with master’s programs in the Northern Region. Quinnipiac also is recognized in Princeton Review’s “The Best 380 Colleges.”
The announcement follows Keith Rhodes joining the University as Vice President, Brand Strategy and Integrated Communications in March 2014. Rhodes joined Quinnipiac following 20+ years in integrated marketing communications, most recently as SVP Group Director at Young & Rubicam Group of New York.
"We’re excited to work with Critical Mass given their demonstrated success in combining strategy, design and technology to deliver on business objectives,” said Rhodes. “We’ve spent the better part of the last year developing a multi-year marketing communications transformation strategy for the University and we’re looking forward to working with Critical Mass where we will seek inspiration outside of higher education in order to deliver a website that establishes a new standard for the industry.
“We’re honored by the opportunity to work with an institution as prestigious as Quinnipiac,” said Di Wilkins, CEO of Critical Mass. “We look forward to partnering on some very ambitious goals, and strengthening the university’s place at the forefront of digital.”
