The International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI) was founded in Malta in 1988 with a mission to train officers in international maritime law and promote safe, secure, sustainable shipping across international waters. Over the past 30 years, the institute has offered various post-graduate programmes and courses. Some 1000+ maritime experts hailing from 145 states have graduated from IMLI.
IMLI contacted NIU as they were in need of a new corporate website that comprehensively detailed the functions, faculty, and rich history of the institute. The project would also entail a complete restructuring of the institute’s archives, publications, and files, all of which needed to be organised and made easily accessible online.
From the start, we were aware that this project would require all hands on deck. The sheer amount of information that needed to be hosted and migrated on the site meant that NIU’s designers and developers had to take extra care whilst building the technical architecture of the site to ensure it has a high level of usability and navigability.
A fantastic looking website is all well and good. However, if your website takes an absolute age to load, you might as well have a static image online, as users will simply click off and go elsewhere.
Slow loading times boil down to low quality hosting, which can slow your website’s response times to dial-up speeds. And even the most ardent retro lovers can agree, some things should remain confined to the past.
With NIU you’ll never have such concerns. NIU only works with finest file hosting services on the planet, giving you the protection and peace of mind needed for an optimal website performance at all times. Our cloud hosting solutions guarantee security, super-fast loading times, and daily backups. Our high speed infrastructure also ensures your website is ready for unpredictable traffic surges which may be experienced from time to time.
IMLI needed to upload some ten years’ worth of documents, publications and files onto their new website. The NIU team worked around the clock to make certain all files were correctly listed on the right pages, while the website’s performance remained smooth throughout.
In order for IMLI to keep in touch with prospective students and alumni, they requested we implement a newsletter module into the website build
NIU’s newsletter systems integrate seamlessly with the website’s Content Management System, making it easy for clients to manage their mailing list, create engaging emails with personalised touches, and automatically track customer behaviour and email statistics. All out newsletter modules are GDPR compliant.
Corporate Web design
Web design isn’t all always about being the flashiest or the most eye-popping. Different projects call for different approaches and NIU’s designers are experts at marrying ultimate functionality with stylish design that perfectly encapsulates your business and values.
For IMLI, NIU designed a corporate website that embodies the heritage and prestigiousness of this institute. Content is arranged in clearly marked sections, all made navigable via the fixed menu bar, which makes it ultra-easy for users to find what they are looking for in seconds, no matter what page they are on. We even incorporated an overarching footer menu to list each page within the site.
Well-defined content boxes on the homepage and course pages continue to delineate information and direct users to the content of most relevance to them.
