Spaghetti Maths

Responsive website for fun after-school clubs

The challenge

Spaghetti Maths aim to get children to show more interest and motivation in maths by participating in their after-school clubs. Headland was briefed to design and build the start up enterprise’s new responsive website with two distinct audiences: the parents of primary aged children, and enticing new training staff interested in taking up a Spaghetti Maths franchise.

The solution

Spaghetti Maths recognised the importance of having a responsive website from the beginning of the assignment. The website is delivered using the Umbraco content management system and fits perfectly on any screen, by utilising responsive HTML5 templates. The site is broken down into two distinct websites; a promotional and booking website for parents, and a separate but consistent website for franchisee information. The two sites together feature online course booking, advanced payment gateway integration, course and financial reporting modules and a secure franchisee management area.

We designed the website using a bright and attractive colour palette to position Spaghetti Maths and their ethos of learning as fun and enjoyable. Bold typography and interactive animations are used throughout the site to communicate a clear and friendly message to the target audience.

  • Site built in Umbraco
  • Launch of new brand
  • An exciting and interactive online experience
  • Responsive site enables browsing on all devices
  • Search engine friendly

The results

Spaghetti Maths accomplished a fantastic launch, attracting children and adults from all over the country to get involved in their educational maths activities. The new bespoke website features an HTML canvas and JavaScript background animation, enhancing the interactivity of the website.

  • Highly successful initial launch
  • Positive feedback from users
  • Active and growing user base
  • Successful e-commerce deployment
Beyond the design and build of a transactional website supporting a new online business, it is really rewarding to work on a project helping young people to engage with a subject as important to their futures as maths.
