Goals

Great Start wanted to easily update their website themselves, so we chose to develop using WordPress, a content management system. They needed to provide information on childhood development at many stages, link to age screening tools, information on free pre-school, and much more. The site needed to be responsive and mobile friendly, as well as ADA compliant so the site would be accessible for people with disabilities.

Summary & Results

The first step was creating mockups. Being a larger site, mockups were needed for almost every page. Almost all the images are stock photography. The childhood development page features in depth content starting from prenatal care, infant, toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and school aged children. Links are provided for aged screening tools to make sure your child is on par with communication, motor skills, problem solving, and personal social skills.
