UX/UI

OrangeYouGlad was brought in by Great Minds to bring fresh ideas to a gargantuan project. Over three years, we assisted with UX and created the UI design system and library for a platform that lets educators teach their students digitally. We created the digital universe that both teacher and student use to experience the rich and complex curricula created by Great Minds. For students we included more color, illustration, large buttons, and simplified navigation. We added more structure for teachers to make order out of complex functionality and multiple layers of content.

DESIGNING FOR TWO AUDIENCES

Our challenge was to design an education platform for both teachers and students that addresses the unique needs and experience of each, in a unified way.

A PLATFORM THAT CAN DO IT ALL

Teaching digitally is complex considering different devices, accessibility needs, and a vast age range of users. This led to designing everything from an eReader to student tracking and reporting, and even an educational game app.

DESIGNING FOR TWO AUDIENCES

Our challenge was to design an education platform for both teachers and students that visually feel as though they came from the same trusted source.

BUILDING A ROBUST DESIGN SYSTEM

We created a fully documented design system to assist in current and future development. We also made sure that the whole system was fully accessible by adhering to ADA’s AAA standards.
