Context

The Lycée Fresnel is a optician public school located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. It offers a wide array of formations in the domain; from the Bac professionel or technical to the BTS optician eyeglasses-making. The first version of their wesite was built with flash and no longer met modern criterias of clarity and content organisation. As a consequence, a second version had to be developed. It had to present the establishement, its different formations and how to register. Moreover, the graphical charter was getting old and needed revamping. Finally, since the  open-doors day was  approaching, two panels concernaing the two main domains of formations had to be designed.

Realization

The creative process began by refreshing the graphical charter while keeping its essence in order to bridge to the existing image. Then, the design and the model of the site were aligned on this charter.  Alexis Lancien, a professional photograph, was hired to produce visuals that would be featured on the futur site. A mini format, which presents content without requiring scrolling, was picked in order to showcase the different visuals in background. A play between blurring and clarity was added to connote the lycée's domain. Finally, the content was organized in a vertical menu.
