Xperitas' new website by Irish Titan

Xperitas is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting global citizenship through authentic immersion experiences. Xperitas offers programs that embody true language and cultural immersion, inspire personal connections with diverse individuals and communities worldwide and provide transformational experiences for our participants.

 

Xperitas was born from two distinct and separate organizations: Intercultural Student Experiences (ISE) and Global Citizens Network. Both organizations specialize in immersive travel experiences and global learning. Their independent digital footprints, while functional, were not well positioned to take on the other’s features and functionality. They sought a partner to create an entirely new platform, equipped with robust CMS capabilities, updated branding and messaging, and new site features

 

The Xperitas website is complex, heavily branded, and a one-stopshop for key Xperitas personas. Because the Xperitas brand evolved from two organizations both having different key personas (ISE was geared toward students wanting to enroll in an exchange program and Global Citizens Network was geared towards families, educators, students, and global citizens who wanted to volunteer), the new site had to cater to both audiences.

 

Implementing a content strategy was a key factor in ensuring the Xperitas value proposition and offering was clear. We structured the site to house content appropriately, making it easy for Xperitas personnel to update and manage and simple for site visitors to search for the correct information. 

 

 

 

"Once it was agreed to merge GCN and ISE into “one” organization with a common mission, we knew that rebranding was essential. Once Xperitas was born, we began the process to look for the best partner to help us spread the word and bring our new brand to life using the new technologies and communication medium available. From our first meeting with the Irish Titan team, we knew that we were in good hands. Our new website is the result of a truly consultative process between our two teams. We have felt as a true partner in the process and are looking forward to continuting the journey with Irish Titan, who almost knows our organization better than we do. Thank you Irish Titan for your suppport, integrity, and passion."
