The New England School of Photography has been a top photography school and launchpad for professional photographers. Founded in 1968 by an Oscar-nominated cinematographer, they educate students in both the artistic and professional skills they need to succeed as professional photographers .
With a treasure trove of stunning images at their disposal, NESOP needed a new website that reflected the artistry of their school, and would attract top talent from across the US and beyond to the school. While NESOP wanted to boldly stand out from other academic websites, they also came to ICS with a functional challenge: could the website automate their enrollment, and save their staff hours of manually entering the data?
By collaborating with their team, we redesigned their site and added easy and intuitive online enrollment. The redesigned site maximizes the use of their photography, making for a beautiful expressive online experience.
We improved the overall user experience through a streamlined, filterable workshop catalog. ICS overhauled the back-end to create a more intuitive system for managing workshops for the NESOP administrative staff.
The new NESOP website is a richer, more modern browsing experience that utilizes strong imagery, intuitive navigation and a fully responsive design to provide a first-class experience – and ultimately draw more applicants to the NESOP professional photography program.
