We helped exSTEMsions bring their vision to life. We designed and built a website for this innovative company to publish and sell their content.
The exSTEMsions team came to us with a vision of a platform to help children advance their math and critical thinking skills through digital content. Their passion for education and innovative learning was inspirational. Over the course of five months, we helped to design a brand identity, visual strategy, custom graphics and illustrations, and a robust web platform.
One of the primary goals of the website was to create interactive content that users could subscribe to access. We worked with exSTEMsions from concept to deployment to design and develop a web platform that could achieve their goals. As a new company budget and timeline were major considerations, as was ensuring the platform could gracefully respond to their needs and be prepared to change or grow in the future. This required a thoughtful approach to cut a sensible thread between their budgetary needs and technical needs.
We didn't want to "jam" complex logic into a template or platform that assumed too much about their content structure but building a full-blown bespoke web application would take far too much time and resources to be considered a reasonable approach. In walks Craft CMS. We love Craft, because unlike platforms like WordPress and subscription blog apps, it leaves a great deal of flexibility to developers to design custom content structures and relationships. We worked alongside the exSTEMsions team to design a feature-rich platform with intelligent integrations that yielded a robust authoring experience and the freedom to design and build the user interface that we imagined.
The final build includes:
- Custom responsive interface
- Brand illustrations & iconography
- Extendable authoring experience
- Subscription-only content
- eCommerce & online patments
- Custom user rewards / badges
- Dynamic notifications
- Relational content
- Transactional & marketing email integrations
- Support desk integrations
- Custom mathematical rendering
We're excited to see how exSTEMsions grows and look forward to helping the team optimize and extend their platform. If you have a passion for Math we highly recommend trying their unique problem-solving experience.
