User Experiences in Education

We raise the profile of institutions challenged with creating experiences for a
broad audience by improving web portals and backend user interfaces.

A strong focus on student and staff experience is a strategic imperative for the education sector, helping to achieve enrollment targets, attract and retain top faculty and promote excellence.

Reach educators

Managing diverse and often conflicting student and academic goals and steering through the complex hierarchy of a large institution has the potential to build or damage your institution's reputation. We research and design experiences and systems that stand out while supporting your vision and mission at every turn.

Successful student onboarding

Your website is the first port of call to attract enrollment, recruit top talent and showcase the student experience. It can also be an exciting, ‘go to’ hub for current students, faculty and alumni. We help you make it easy to apply, enroll and deliver the right information at the right time.
