New Brand Identity and Website for the Woodview Learning Centre

Posted by on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 ·  

We’re thrilled to unveil the new brand identity and website for the Woodview Learning Centre, an alternative school placement program for students from 4 to 17 years of age with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

New Website for Woodview Learning Centre

The new website was designed for parents that are looking for an alternative school placement for their child with ASD. “We wanted to
create a stress-free space where parents that are searching for an ASD-specific school would easily find the information that they are
looking for in a clear and transparent way,” said Lindsey Court, Principal and Program Manager. “For the past 15 years we have strived to
provide ‘just right’ supports for each student, and now our new website highlights the work that we do.” Parents, medical professionals,
and service providers are invited to explore the site, to learn more about our program, and to follow our new blog. It was important for us
to create an AODA compliant website, and we welcome feedback on the site’s accessibility:

New Autism School Logo Designed by School Parent

We wanted a logo that would be specific to the school and emphasize the educational aspect of the Woodview Learning Centre, while
maintaining its connection to the main agency, Woodview Mental Health and Autism Services. We approached Karen Jorritsma of Bolster
Design – a former school parent – who designed the beautiful new logo, and describes it as “an open book with pages that are in
movement representing momentum in learning. The orange figure in the middle represents a student whose ‘arms’ reach up in a happy,
positive direction, showing joy and enthusiasm. The ‘body’ is an abstract heart shape, representing the care received at the school.”
