Summary of the project

Akademi for Programmering is educating adults who want to change their career path, or continue their studies at university.

Colors

Our page resembles the color theme of a code editor, that is (or soon will be) familiar for our target audience. 

The color scheme follows a system throughout the whole website and all materials; everything front-end is green, everything back-end is orange, and everything full-stack is purple (our main brand color, referring to that our main profile is full-stack programming education).

Fonts

Headers are Roboto Slab, a serif font, that roughly resembles the monotype fonts of code editors, but a little more elegant.

Reading text is Roboto, a sans-serif font, that is easy to read in larger chunks of texts, even on a dark background.

Logo versions

The logo is a drawing of the Oslo Rådhus, created in Adobe Illustrator. It’s iconic for citizens in Oslo, and it refers to the roots of the organization.

The name is written in Roboto, light and bold, and the main field (programmering) is highlighted with the Akademi’s purple color. I chose purple because it’s often used in code editor’s.

The logo was created in 8 versions;

  • colourful on light background
  • colourful on dark background
  • black and white on dark background
  • black and white on white background
  • and a horizontal version of each of the above

Improvements

Launch and advertising gave us valuable customer feedback, and I wrote a whole case study about how we used this qualitative and quantitative data to improve UX. Click here to read it >>>

The client said...

“I have known Petra for many years now and known her to be a knowledgeable designer. However, now I have the opportunity to call her my colleague in my academy to teach people programming. Despite the relatively short time that has passed since we started to work together, she has already demonstrated great skills in front end design and architecture. Petra works fast and precise, even under pressure and in challenging circumstances. She is a trustworthy colleague and I hope to work with her on the long run!”
