Meet the Steph.

Steph has operated Footprints for 26 years. She's seen many parents endure the emotional roller coaster of waving goodbye for the day – hoping the face they see at pick-up time will be a smiling one.

As a mum and the founder of Footprints Educational Complex, she know how challenging the experience can be.

The brief.

As Burnie's most experienced and longest running, privately operated child care centre, Footprints is an institution. Rebranding a treasured place is a big job! With the whole team on board ready to find a new face and energy we focussed on the children, creating a tactile website what would draw people in, show the children but not their faces for privacy concerns, and showcase the facilities. 

The concept of footprints and growth had to be retained, but all other options were ready to be considered.

From the very first meeting with Sarah, I knew that the build and design of my website could not have been done by any other than the team at A Lined Design.

Sarah instantly understood my vision and herself and her team threw their whole hearts into my website design and build.

They worked tirelessly to bring Noble Ink into the future, one to rival the big franchises in Tasmania, Australia and beyond. Super responsive and met my requirements and more and they even went the extra mile with a cool animation for my home page!

The growth of my business that I experienced from launch day …. I employed a Full Time local to help keep up with the extra demand!

Say no more, hands down the best decision I ever made was to use A Lined Design for my web build!

It is important to me that "women support other women" and also when selecting a web designer that I support a local Tasmanian business. This is what I did when choosing Sarah Crawford and A Lined Design. I could not be happier with new professional but fun website and branding.

- Steph Rubock

Sarah came highly recommended and it didn’t take long to see why. From the first meet to the last she has been extremely competent and professional, what meant more to me was her kindness and patience.

Sarah’s onboarding process is outstanding and her project management skills top notch. I can honestly say what was delivered was beyond expectation and the logo, colour palette and branding guidelines add enormous value over and above the website.

Sarah is a good listener and open to suggestion. I enjoyed working with her and have no doubt you will too.

The design.

Textured cardboard, crayons, layered paper - lots of texture and warmth to invite a reader in to the rooms. It is totally posible to create something tactile on a flat website!

The colour palette has been lifted from coloured paper in al the colours of the rainbow - broad enough for all applications. No black was used, instead a dark warm blue-grey. 

Every element has soft edges and soft animations - the fonts, the elements. 

The icon is two overlapped feet in the shape of a heart. 

A huge update to a gorgeous institution. Thanks team!
