BLUE MOUNTAINS SCHOOL
DESIGN RESEARCH | UI/UX DESIGN | ILLUSTRATION
The Blue Mountains School in the Nilgiris (Tamil Nadu, India) was established in 1961 by F.G.Pearce. It is a residential and co-educational institution that endeavours to base its life and learning on a process of self discovery.Certain features of the school and its overall ethos distinguish it radically from other residental schools in India.
The objective was to design a website for the school that reflected its unique philosophy as well as showcased its facilities and amenities.
I began by spending time with studednts, staff and parents of the school to understand the essence and philosophy that drove it. I also looked at other residential school websites and collateral to identify what made the blue mountains school unique.
I chose the illustrated approach because the schools charachter and charm was better expressed by illustrations than photography. Each illustration was painstakingly created referencing photographs of the school, wih watercolors and black pen and finished in photoshop.
