Designing a Platform for an Alumni Network

Client: Shearman & Sterling Alumni Network


Knox Design Strategy recently provided the design for the Shearman & Sterling alumni website, a community of over 6,000 individuals. The alumni network provides a wealth of resources including events, a job database and alumni spotlights. Throughout the process we collaborated with the internal marketing team and the firm’s selected development team, Vuture. The overall design approach reflects the firm’s brand identity while also providing  a unique look and feel specific to the alumni network.

The Knox Design Strategy team goes the extra mile for us. I feel comfortable working with the team on both the print and digital side, but I especially like KDS’s digital work. We’ve plugged Brandie in with some of our stakeholders, and she’s worked directly with them, and it’s worked out well.
