Pittsburgh, PA, September 10, 2015—The new website of the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation went live on September 10, 2015 just prior to the GraphExpo print show. The launch of the new website, which offers quick and easy access to essential information on PGSF for both students and donors, is part of the organization’s ongoing efforts to enhance the availability of information and ease of use to the graphic arts community and students that it serves.
The website boasts a modern, colorful design and is divided into sections appropriate to the visitor and their purpose for reaching the site. Students or potential donors are quickly directed to their applicable sections and resources within the site. Each page provides detailed information on both aspects of the organization’s function.
“This represents a major step forward for the Foundation and our goal of increasing our visibility throughout the industry.” Stated John Berthelsen, Vice-president of Development, “We now have a site that visitors will find easy to use as well as very informative.”
The website also offers resources such as the Directory of Schools (offering graphic arts programs), Career Guide, a Career Poster for recruiting youth into the industry and an Industry Overview. The website’s user-friendly nature provides users with more efficient access to the organization’s resources. Other new functions include videos, on-line donation capability and links to related industry resources. Visit the site at www.pgsf.org
