Higher Education Outreach Network
A website that acts as a hub for teachers, students, parents & carers that hosts information and activities designed to increase progression rates for students going into Higher Education.
10 Degrees were introduced to HEON by our client, SUN (Southern Universities Network), to design and develop a WordPress website. The scope for this project expanded after our discovery session when we proposed some brand development and supporting guidelines could be beneficial to the organisation.
HEON had an existing logo design which we used as the basis to form a new identity with brand guidelines, business stationery and templates for in-house communications. It was important we didn’t stray too far from the previous logo design and retained the brand equity they’d built up during the time it was live.
Bespoke UX & website design
UX was key as we need to cater for HEON’s three main users; teachers, students and parents & carers. Clearly signposted as you land on the homepage, next the primary focus is the search for activities available for schools and colleges. We also created vector graphics for use on their blog and resource posts.
Ongoing support & maintenance
We’ve provided ongoing support and maintenance to HEON since launch, and have since developed a virtual book club. We implemented a WordPress learning management system (LMS) to help manage their summer school during the COVID19 pandemic which has allowed HEON to deliver their content remotely.
Thank you for the work you have all undertaken for the HEON site. We have been very pleased that you have taken our ideas and have produced a professional product that we are really happy with. When our funding body visited recently they were impressed with the content of the website.
