Harmony Nursery

01. The Brief

Voted “Outstanding” by Oftsed 6 years running, Harmony Nursery needed a better online presence with a fuller user experience.

Many parents had heard of the nursery in the community through word of mouth but had found it a challenge to locate the website and obtain the information they needed online. The idea was to create a responsive website, with built-in SEO and the ability to update parents on the activities and themes occurring each term.

Services: Website, Photography, Motion
Software: Photoshop, Wordpress, Premiere
Equipment: Canon 70D

02. The Design

The original website had to be deconstructed with all the information rewritten and organised into separate, easy to read sections.

With the brief in mind, I came up with the UX, web designs and photos that worked seamlessly to achieve the goal.

It was important for the design of the website to reflect the nature of the nursery so we decided that a 2 day photoshoot was necessary in order to capture relevant, high quality photos (as opposed to using stock imagery), for various areas of the site to sell Harmony’s USP’s.

03. The Result

The result was a responsive website, compatible across multiple browsers and smart devices, which enables the user to manually update the blogs and pages with rich content.

In addition, Harmony needed to get honest feedback from staff and parents to show why they had such a good reputation within the community. So rather than adding written testimonials to the website, I suggested to make a short video instead, which was met with great excitement.

I planned 2 days of filming at the nursery, with testimonials from selected parents and senior members of staff which truly captured the multicultural environment and love that Harmony provides to everyone who enters its doors.
