iN Education, Inc. is on a mission to increase the overall Standardized Testing averages on a national level, improve upon test prep ACT and SAT awareness, teach youth the “hard & soft skills” necessary for the success in all industries prior to entering the workforce, address health and wellness for the families, provide incentives to achieve high levels of education, and emphasize the importance of continuing education.
With a really dated template, and having seen their opportunity opening, I contacted iN Education, Inc to help them with the redesigning of their entire website, with the purpose of making it stand out and hold true to it’s value and mission.
I started off the project by understanding the requirements of the nonprofit, which involved interview with the founder. Initial interviews led to creation of sitemap, to better understand the flow of the entire website.
After the approval of the sitemap, and to move forward, I created rough sketches which led to wireframes (my usual steps for a design project).
For a non-profit, telling a story is very important, which leads to donations and volunteer engagements, hence, I made sure the initial wireframes reflected what’s more important for the organization to tell.
The brand colors were very important for the organization and hence, keeping that in mind, I created the final design comps close to it.
