School Website Design

Over 250 school website designs and counting since 2002. Below is a selection of some of my favourites from the past few years. If you're looking to have your school website re-designed then I would highly recommend PrimarySite and if you think I'm the designer for you, make sure you mention my name as your preferred designer.

Poppleton Ousebank Primary

This school recently decided to update the site I'd already designed back in 2011. Since I had enjoyed working on the original, the chance to have another go was a chance not to be missed.

The client wanted poppies to be used and for the design to not be too boxy. A large slideshow in the centre with rays of light eminating from it.

Harrison Primary School

The pictures were the primary focus of this brief to support the main content of the site along with the school motto on a wavy shape. The style was to be informal, bright and child friendly.

The background of this design is quite wide so I needed to think about how the background images could bleed off the edge at each side but the images would still be meaningful. I therefore chose images with a subject focus which would be near to each edge of the main content area.

Cheadle Infant School

Okay, in a perfect world the first design we produced would be adored by the client, we could skip the amendment stage and go straight to the site build. Sadly that's not always the case. Sometimes I like to push the boundaries of the brief and put in a little extra (time permitting). Of course the design meets the requirements of the brief but maybe it's not what the client expected. This is a perfect example of that scenario. I was really pleased with the result, my client loved it but the school had something different in mind.

Here you can see the original design which was based on an idea I'd had to create a website which looks like a montage of stitched material. Click the link to see the finished design.

The British School, Wotton-under-Edge

Occasionally a job comes along which seems just that little more special. The British School just around the corner from where I lived as a small child and is where I have my earliest memories.

The client liked one of my site designs for Alumwell Junior School as well as other sites by other designers. My task was to create a design which encompassed the general feeling of all the sites and incorporated their existing logo and illustrated graphics. One such requirement was the use of icons on the navigation buttons and the use of the bright colours from the logo.

Padnell Junior School

The school illustration for this design was a bit of a challenge as the photo supplied of the building had a tree obscuring part of the building. It was necessary to look online for a satellite view to figure out what was missing. As I couldn't see how the windows were, the foreground image was placed to hide the unknown portion.

The image was distorted to achieve the rounded look after which the illustration could begin. With the motto 'Reaching for the Stars' I darkened the tone at the top of the sky to suggest altitude and included the stars. The shooting star was a design requirement.

St Peter & St Paul Church of England Infant School

With this design brief came a really good professional quality logo. This helps to improve the overall quality of the design as a bad logo generalyy reduces the overall quality feel.

The brief stated that dark purple should be included in a subtle way. The wavy shape creates a separation between the header and main content and a blue was used for all navigational elements and links.

White borders were achieved by using a light grey gradient in the background but the whole design feels fresh, sharp and modern.

Garston, Church & Mossley Hill Children's Centre

This school recently decided to update the site I'd already designed back in 2011. Since I had enjoyed working on the original, the chance to have another go was a chance not to be missed.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC.

Fawbert & Barnard Infants' School

The pictures were the primary focus of this brief to support the main content of the site.
