A fresh new design was needed for this school website, to attract new students and their whanau to Huanui College. As Whangarei’s only private school, their website needed to reflect the student benefits and high standard of education.
Gathering content; images and text for this project was a challenge accepted by Ash Fuchs, Publications and Media and Teacher at Huanui College. The success of this project can be largely attributed to the work of Ash. Her work liaising with all involved at the school, allowed the team at Monster Creative to focus on creating a modern website design and build.
From an original pitched design we began to flesh out each section and each page design as the content was made available. A lot changed throughout the process and the design evolved as we broke down what the best attributes of Huanui College are. With the website needing to serve students, whanau and the community, it also needed to be a strong marketing tool to attract new enrolments from outside areas.
This project involved:
- Custom website design
- A custom website build using WordPress
- 6 different page template designs
- Integrations with Mail Chimp, Facebook and Instagram
- Categorised event feeds onto the home page timeline
The end result has really lifted the image of the school from an outsiders perspective online. See what Ash Fuchs had to say about working with the team at Monster Creative…
“We are so proud of our beautiful new site, and very impressed with how easy it is for us to edit and update. The team at Monster gave us mountains of valuable ideas and feedback during the design process, while maintaining fast response time to our communication. One of the mega highlights is how well the site handles the copious amounts of text. As a school, there is a plethora of information that needs to be available to people of different audiences, and we are absolutely delighted at how we feel our new site communicates who we are, and what we do. Awesome!!”
