- School Portal
- Homepage Interactive
This site is more of an experience than just a website All of the features images implemented truly bring the campus to life. The homepage includes full screen photography of the campus and students, which can be navigated like a slideshow by the arrows on the left and right hand sides. The arrow below the Saint Maur crest on the homepages hides all text, header and footer to give a clean full page slideshow. A "reveal" gives quick easy access to upcoming news and events.
An interesting new Mash-Up is available from all pages of the site by the #SaintMaur button in the main navigation. This pulls down all of their social media channels including Twitter, Vimeo and Flicker. The pull down is all controlled by Web Parts for complete access and updates.
Because Saint Maur is one of the oldest international schools is the world, their history is very important, but it needs to be presented in a modern way. The creative solution that was implemented is "On This Day in Saint Maur History". It is a subtle way of remembering the past in a modern and fresh format.
To top off such a great site, Saint Maur elected to include a five day @ccelerated trip and soft launched by the end of the week. This is a tremendous achievement and this is what Saint Maur had to say about it...
“I can't express enough how appreciative I am of you guys' efficient, professional, and beautiful work.
The @ccelerated development made an immeasurable difference in the development of the site. We accomplished more in 2 days with Silverpoint than we could have done in 2 months on our own. Not to mention, you guys captured the essence of our school and developed a truly custom, one-of-a-kind page. There's nothing generic about it.” - Chase King, Director of Technology
