THE BRIEF

The main criteria was to have a highly accessible site to allow Teachers to Blog using Blogger and then the Website Pick up this information. Its existing website was tricky to navigate, and its digital marketing strategy needed tuning up. Design and build a responsive multi device website. To be fun, exciting and act as a window into everyday School life at Thames giving lots of useful information for parents. Our squeaky-clean strategy involved refreshing the website using the New Logo, creating a new streamlined, responsive, and highly functional website, and incorporating Googles Blogger for Staff to keep parents up to date on Class News.

REACHING A WIDER AUDIENCE

In the Education sectors, mobile and tablet traffic now outnumbers traditional desktop. This made a mobile-friendly approach vital for the user interface and it's now a central aspect to our education marketing services. As a result, we focused on creating clear, visually rich, but easy to interact with elements to ensure the bounce rate was kept to a minimum.
