We listened to the goals and pain points of our client.

We talked about:

  • the challenges and pain points of the current website
  • the content updating processes 
  • common questions to the front line staff 
  • how a new website would help improve their situation.

Our client had a website that:

  • was not intuitive to navigate for the people using it
  • contained outdated information and photos
  • presented inconsistent branding.



Polished Pixels transformed the website into a more effective tool for attracting potential students. More specifically, our goals were to:

  • improve the experience for potential students
  • bring the branding up to date
  • improve the quality of the website content
  • establish processes on keeping the website up-to-date, using the new CMS
