Lowestoft Sixth Form College is an award-winning, modern, purpose-built sixth-form college in the town of Lowestoft in the English county of Suffolk.

The College came to us to redesign their existing website which had become outdated and no longer met the needs of prospective students, current students and parents.

We worked with the College to create a bold online identity which followed their brand colours throughout to help tie in with other materials they produce.

Brief

The main aim of the website redesign was to update the CMS which the site was based upon enabling the website to be refreshed with a clean user experience for all visitors and enabling the college to be more flexible with the showcasing of news, events and the overall business of the college.

Solution

To successfully meet the brief for the project, we built the site upon the WordPress CMS which features a simple user interface for content creation meeting the needs of the college for flexibility. We then built upon the CMS to include advanced editing capabilities to separate all areas of the site into individual sections making it much clearer.

The redesign involved restructuring the user interface and sitemap to make all content clearer to visitors and easily accessible from all devices. Alongside structure, implementation of the college brand colours was reconsidered site-wide with the college orange taking the front seat for all key elements.
