Most of the educational schemes we work on have some sort of digital content to them, whether it be: online resource material, word templates, interactive PDFs, animation, repackaging, consultancy or project management. We would be happy to have a conversation and find the best solution for you.
Learning online is becoming much more the lead material with educational projects. We have experience of working on digital platforms, a great example of this is a class server. Our brief was to create templates taking into consideration the overall usability and consistency for different screen types. Consideration was paid to aspects such as screen and font size, legibility, colour blindness, and character shapes, creating something which flows well and allows the user clear navigation.
Acting as consultants to help bridge the gap between developers and content providers we were able to bring our experience of designing for learners to the project and give guidance for design decisions.
Digital Resource Material
All of the educational schemes we work on have digital resources, or some sort of shape, whether they have an ebook, downloadable resources, or online apps. We work with assets to make sure that they are the right format, file name, and standards to be used scheme-wide. We have a broad knowledge of what is needed to keep the transition from print to digital & digital to print conversion to form a straightforward project flow.
Managing assets and repurpose material, when budgets are tight, is something we do well at Wild Apple Design. An example is Learning Stars, an interactive digital product using content from its printed counterpart to create a family of components engaging users on multiple levels. We brought in bright and simple primary colours and fun childish graphics to build a library of items that could be used. Being able to edit artwork in house and advise on what could be reused, involved good project management and an understanding of how the child would approach the material.
Working with Developers
We are happy to work on branding and advice on user experience, a great example of this is Spiral for Richmond. This digital platform was a re-skin from an off the shelf product. We would be advised by, and created assets, alongside the developers.
Script writing, story boarding, project management, and creating artwork in-house, working alongside the client and an animator to develop ideas.
Helping keep things on track between developer and client. Sourcing assets, file management, and amending original artwork in-house to comply with tight budgets. Working on short turn around time frames, we can adapt to your needs.
