Our Lady of Lourdes is a private Catholic school based in Bethesda, Maryland, serving pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. Gigawatt Group was approached by the school to design their new website, with the intended goal of making it look modern, mobile-friendly and user-centered.

Our team, led by Creative Director Jim McNulty, and Graphic Designer Yasmine Bouchlaghem, explored creative solutions to deliver an enhanced user experience for both the school’s faculty members and parents. The design process involved multiple phases from the discovery and user research to the creation of the prototypes and the website’s launch.

The team chose Squarespace as the hosting platform, based on its ease of use for future content authoring by the school administration, as well as its ability to integrate e-commerce into the site.  Gigawatt Group is a member of the Squarespace Circle partner program.

With both user experience and interface working hand-in-hand, the Gigawatt team was able to design a user-friendly and responsive website for the most optimal user experience, while still capturing the school’s culture, identity, and values.

“The team at Gigawatt was incredible. Their proactive, flexible and creative approach is wonderful. The results are fabulous.”
