Salesian College Chadstone is a Catholic Secondary School for boys, founded in 1957. The School needed a new responsive website with a new digital branding that would be implemented on other mediums. The new site would predominantly be a communication tool for prospective parents and students.
The primary desired user action had to be the Book a tour. The other main objectives were to build the Salesian brand and differentiate the College from its competitors. Improve Salesian’s interaction with audiences, via clear navigation pathways and quality content maintain and increase enrolments, via online application functionality and search engine optimisation.
A new and fresh digital branding was created for the College to best reflect the new positioning of the brand. Based on a consistent modular design system we could build components blocks that generated several templates throughout the site. See the site
Product Strategy and Design
My name is Bruno Silva. I’m a Designer based in Toronto currently working at Myplanet
. Previously I worked as a senior designer for Ignite Online
designing for clients like Explore Careers, Salesian School, Gerald Hotel and International Grammar School. And also for Westcon
, where I was responsible for the design of their main digital products.
I am fortunate to have started working in the digital industry in 2002 when I was still in design school. During my career I've worked at studios, agencies, startups, and multinational corporations. I have a strong experience working holistically from UX/UI design to visual and creative direction.
To me, design is solving problems, and in my experience, a good result can't be achieved without first understanding the problem and then exhaustively exploring and iterating on design solutions.
