‘We need a leading brand and world class school website’
Brand and education website design
Whilst all the school brand design was being implemented, topright conceptualised and built the school website. We included all the the interactive features one would expect from a high-end website wrapped around the unique brand styling. Features such as: a calendar feed; Twitter feed; latest news feeds; embedded school publications; downloadable elements and form submissions; connection to the management information system and an Alumni portal.
This education website design was built as a network. Incorporating an independent Hire and Events website for marketing the hireable spaces and facilities. The other seperate section of the website is the Alumni social network. Offering ex-students of the school a platform to exchange ideas and thoughts and create a community. Students and teachers can create profiles, share images, dialogue and create groups.
Completely re-structured and re-written content ensure that the brand message runs throughout all aspects of the website. The carefully planned modules and links offer an intuitive navigation experience with many ways to access information.
The website’s typography carefully considered and designed to give the site a very open, light touch – just like the rest of the brand. Imagery is sensitive in this environment and so is kept to a minimum. The elegant and well received website created a twenty-fold increase in enrolment enquiries in its first month. A website the school are rightfully proud of.
School website design
Built as WordPress multisite the site had access to the functionality required to meet the brief. Creating three separate environments for three zones. Building a multisite although more complicated offers far greater scope for the capability of this education website design. Each area of the site has it’s own dashboard for the users allowing for non-global changes.
