Website upgrade for Northern Beaches childcare business.
mi kids is a childcare centre and preschool based at Warriewood on the Northern Beaches. Their original website had been developed by an overseas website design company. Unhappy with the service offered and website delivered by the overseas company, they approached me to work with them in 2018.
Initially, when I started working with mi kids, it was important that costs were kept to a minimum. They had just paid an overseas company to develop a new website for their recently opened childcare centre so much of their budget had been spent.
They were never happy with the website completed by their original web designers so I made some small improvements to fix problems and make the website more user-friendly. Much of the original website design was retained. This work was completed in 2018.
Over the next four years, I made small updates to their website to ensure it was maintained and kept up to date.
In 2022, the clients were very keen for a complete redesign of their website that was more in keeping with the values and programs offered at the Centre.
With this in mind, I designed a website with a more organic, natural colour scheme. The old website featured a bright orange, blue and green palette. This was replaced with lighter, calmer colours. The child-like graphics of the old website were replaced with natural Australian flora.
The clients were very happy with the new website as it better represented their ‘brand’.
Below is a comparison of the old website and the new design.
