General guidelines to keep in mind
clean lines, beauty, WOW-factor; aesthetically pleasing
balance between functionality with aesthetic beauty
To do a successful design, keep 3 things in mind:
Look at the photos we provided to get a feel of the environment: the interior, the children's work spaces, lighting, wood materials, etc.
Visitors to our school are often amazed at its beauty. The Website should have a similar aesthetically pleasing quality, striking in beauty.
Don’t feel stuck to the colors provided. Think freely, let the colors of our school/interior/environments inspire you.
2) Unconventional & sophisticated.
Keep in mind the word "unconventional." We are a unique school, and want our Website not to look like every other school website.
We are known for our authentic Montessori approach. We are serious about what we do. Our website should not look like that of a preschool (especially since we go from Pre-K to 8th grade).
3) Mission-centered (the WHY?)
Our programs are important. But keep in mind our mission is more important to highlight. “Respect, responsibility, and resourcefulness.” To help your child become respectful, responsible, and resourceful. (see mission page).
Visitors to our webpage need to know WHY we are a good school (mission), before knowing HOW we do it or WHAT we do (programs, activities, etc.) See the Golden Circle video to see what I mean.
