It's been 10 years since I applied to universities, but it might as well have been a hundred. When I was a high school senior, I listed extracurricular involvement on five 2-inch blank lines and tried to paint a picture of my service resume with printed words on a page. Today, high school seniors are using the power of websites to supplement their common applications and personal statements. Two of these high school seniors approached me to build something clean and attractive to showcase their personalities and accomplishments.
Charlotte and Olivia each put their own personality into their sites and we created a simple yet powerful brand identity for each of their sites to match each of the students' personal presentation. Charlotte was personal and earthy. Olivia was minimalist and fashion-forward.
Charlotte highlighted the breadth of her experiences and talents by showcasing her original paintings, the fundraising projects she implemented for mission trips, and her dedication to helping the less fortunate in mission work with Operation Smile & Made in the Streets.

Olivia chose to showcase her beautiful photography, to which she has shown tremendous dedication over her high school years. We created a page for each genre of her photography interests, with full-width banners, captions providing more information about the various frames and projects, and tying it all together with an about page, sharing her artistic vision.
