A Bay Area Private School
A Menlo Park, Calif., private school, Trinity School was in need of a new online identity that would align with their existing print brochures and marketing collaterals. They especially were looking to "strike a balance between stodgy and whimsical in the look and feel of the site". Six Feet Up studied the existing materials and created a new web design for Trinity School that showcases the school's positioning and balances it out with a variety of colorful pictures.
Next Six Feet Up helped Trinity School organize the content on their site by grouping it in appropriate categories and simplifying the site map.
Trinity School wanted to delegate content contribution to its administrative and teaching staff. Six Feet Up implemented the new site using the open source Plone Content Management System and set up roles and permissions for content contributors. A couple templates were customized to allow Trinity Staff to easily integrate pictures on the pages and dynamically feature photos on the home page. The base page template especially makes it easy to drop short articles at the bottom of the main text area and feature related sniplets of information. The right column can display up to three framed pictures chosen from a pool of pictures inside each main section of the site.
A password-protected News area was added to the site to share information with parents on upcoming school activities, recent reports, and other sensitive information.
Last, Six Feet Up implemented extended calendar functionalities to allow the School to manage access to event details by controlling what information is displayed to the public and what requires teachers, parents and students to log in.
