The Brief.

We were asked to pitch for this project in late 2014 by one of our partner agencies, MARSH Graphic Design. We have worked with MARSH since 2010 on various website projects and jumped at the chance of working with The Brittons Academy.

The brief was to develop the website based on the designs proposed by MARSH. Although the bulk of the design work was not part of our process, we still had a hand in advising and consulting with both MARSH and The Brittons Academy in order to give them the best result.

The client wanted something easy to update, scalable and simple to manage.

The Solution.

Working from the initial design mockups, we started by creating a series of page templates that would be used for the bulk of the site’s content.

Each page was to have a full screen splash image, with centre aligned white grid, from which the content would be displayed, making sure to adhere to their brand colours and font.

The content is split in to 4 groups; The Brittons Academy, Staff, Parents and Students. Each section utilises an array of different content types, such as flat pages, downloadable PDF’s, calendars, blog/news sections and galleries.

Relying heavily on the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, we were able to deliver a fully bespoke, customisable, modern website.

The Result.

After several months of ‘on and off’ development, we finally delivered the ‘signed off’ website to The Brittons Academy in June 2015.

The website encompasses everything they initially requested, plus a few extras here and there that we applied as and when it made sense, things like animated icons and fading images that just help to give .

It is, of course, fully mobile/tablet friendly with a responsive grid layout in place to ensure that the website will be readily available at any screen size.

We are very pleased with the outcome and continue to work with The Brittons Academy to this day, further concreting our desire to form long-term relationships with our clients.
