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. 

Fonts

Headers are Roboto Slab, a serif font, that roughly resembles the monotype fonts of code editors, but still decorative enough to be used as design elements.

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.

The name is written in Roboto, light and bold, and the main field (programmering) is highlighted with the Akademi’s blue color, because that’s assumingly most associated with IT businesses.

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 gave us valuable customer feedback, therefore we improved the following things:

  • We added a “Prices” and a “Dates” menu item, as well as included them on the front page, because an overwhelming majority of the questions we have received were regarding these two topics.
  • We changed the background behind our partners’ logos to white, to make it easier for our partners to represent themselves on our page.
  • We implemented a row full of helpful links on the bottom of every page.

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!”
