The design experience matters.
We simply can’t stress this enough. Yes, Blackbaud K–12 has many talented web designers who have created beautiful, award-winning sites. But you know what? So do other companies. What makes us different is that we truly care about your team’s design experience—because when the service engagement is over, it’s your team who will be tasked with the day-to-day site management. Ask yourself: How can someone who was not deeply involved in the design process be expected to preserve the established level of excellence? You’ll find the answer within our collaborative design process.
Collaborative Web Design
Many companies talk about creating a partnership, but how many of them actually make the customer part of the design process? Our team walks the walk with innovative, collaborative design sessions. In these meetings, your school’s design team will be educated on the strategy behind design decisions, develop a sense of ownership over the design, and feel empowered to move forward. That’s our promise.
Tiered Design Services
To meet each school’s unique online communication goals, Blackbaud K–12 provides several tiers of web design. We offer everything from quick-start templates for schools with limited time or budgets to custom services for schools looking to stand out. We also provide a variety of a-la-carte services, such as logo and landing page design—many of which are great post-launch additions for continually evolving sites.
Responsive by Design
Responsive web design isn’t an option, it’s a necessity. Every website developed for onMessage has always been fully responsive for mobile viewing—at no extra cost. There’s also no difference in onMessage functionality between design service levels. From quick-start to custom services, we believe in equipping all of our schools with the same content management tools for website success.
