Background 

Play'n' Learn designs and manufactures learning resources, furniture and equipment, for early childhood services, a New Zealand family-owned company that has been committed to manufacturing NZ-made furniture and sourcing high-quality educational resources for early childhood services and primary schools for over two decades.

Challenge

One of my clients, Play'N' Learn designs and manufactures learning resources for early childhood services, and sought to expand its business into the Australian market. They required a new website specifically tailored to the Australian audience.

 

The primary challenge was to improve and rebuild a website on their given template, improve its layout, and make it responsive across all devices. My task was not only to ensure the website's responsiveness on mobile, tablet, and laptop devices but also would seamlessly adapt to various devices and screen sizes, ensuring an optimal user experience for all visitors.

Goal

Our goal was to design and develop a visually appealing, user-friendly, and responsive website for Play'N' Learn's entry into the Australian market. The key objectives were to improve the overall layout, streamline the navigation, enhance the website's aesthetics to match the company logo, introduce interactive elements and animations, add a new blog page, and optimize the website's SEO to increase traffic. Additionally, we aimed to establish a long-term partnership with the client, continuing to enhance the website and showcase their business through ongoing updates and improvements.
