University of Western States, Portland, OR

The University of Western States, one of the country’s oldest Chiropractic colleges, received a grant to create a website to catalogue over 100 years of the school’s history. They came to Stellaractive with boxes full of well-preserved archives and the dream of a site that would not only include the precious historical documents but allow easy, intuitive access to the school’s history.

Our staff worked with UoWS to integrate the archives and a 60 page historical document in a way that felt intuitive, interesting and as easy to flip through as a book.

We delivered a vibrant website with an interactive timeline, allowing users to quickly find a specific year or event.  The timeline highlights significant events in the University’s history and can be browsed separately for an interesting illustrative history that includes photos and text.
