Bradford Grammar School is an outstanding independent school in Yorkshire. They wanted an interactive iPad prospectus to take users on a journey through the school. The app had to be based on the hard copy prospectus to ensure the school could leverage its existing design assets.
However, the app had to be more than simple a copy of the prospectus - it had to be brought to life with animation, video, audio and interactive features. calls9 was engaged to provide all design and technology services for this project.
The design team started with the hard copy prospectus for the Junior School and the Senior School. From these documents the team storyboarded an app which covered both schools into an integrated app experience.
Using their animation skills they devised compelling motion effects which were used throughout the app to make the content stand out and draw in the users. Consistent, bold colouring was used to compliment the existing prospectus documents.
The iPad app was once of the first interactive prospectus apps built in the UK. It used cutting edge native app technology to smoothly display full screen visuals combined with interactive features and animation.
The app was packaged with over 20 minutes of high quality video, music files and photo galleries to bring the prospectus content to life. By using our in-house technology we were able to convert the hard copy document into an interactive app relatively quickly and cost effectively for the school.
The BGS Showcase iPad app is a compelling interactive prospectus for both the Junior and Senior school which takes users on a journey through what the schools have to offer.
By using our specialist technology we were able to leverage their existing design assets and support them with animation, music, video and interactive features to help the school stand out.
