ABOUT THE DESIGN

The application of the digital design enlivened and expanded an existing brand. Building off of one primary color, the turquoise, additional colors were added to the palette to appeal to teachers and students. The typography utilizes both serif and sans-serif to support modern web design and long-form reading.
