We at Stellar Blue are proud to announce the launch of the Building for Kids Children’s Museum’s new custom website! The project was a ton of fun and the website reflects that. The Building for Kids Children’s Museum is located in Appleton, Wis, and provides interactive exhibits designed to build imagination, creativity and confidence in children. Stellar Blue is proud to be a sponsor of such a great organization. This is Stellar Blue’s first website project with Building for Kids.
One of the most noticeable and innovative features of the website is the embedded homepage video, showing children at the museum playing and having a great time. Once visitors have a smile on their face from the video, they can continue down the homepage which includes links to upcoming museum events as well as exhibit information. Near the bottom of the page there is a collage of images from the museum’s Instragram feed. A scrolling sponsor marquee, e-newsletter signup and contact information round out the footer of the site.
“The Building for Kids Children’s Museum does such a great job of engaging kids and building their creativity,” said Marketing Director Amanda Betts, “that we really wanted the website’s design to reflect that.”
The site needed to replicate the creativity and imagination that the museum inspires, while also providing a great user experience. An animated navigation bar provides easy access to all areas of the site, such as the event calendar, about page and blog, just to name a few. On the top of every page, the museum’s hours for the day are displayed, and buttons for membership and donations are easily accessible. In this area, visitors can also utilize the site search feature. For accessibility, the entire site is responsive to different screen sizes, and Google Translate is available to convert the site to nearly any language. The site uses WordPress, which makes content management easy.
