Project description

Preschool is a critical stage of development in every child’s life.

The Early Childhood Information Library (ECIL) was created to provide critical listings and reviews of the curriculum used in early education.

ECIL is run by a team of researchers at the University of Minnesota. Electric Citizen was selected to design and build the website for the program.

What We Did

We strategized with the client on how to best present an online library of interventions and strategies to educators.

Resources are rated on three main criteria, and categorized by domains. Results can be filtered by a variety of terms, including ratings, age of students, tier of intervention and keywords. Summaries of results are presented in cards, with a full-set of details available on individual resource pages. 

Because of the specialized industry terms, we include a series of easy-to-access help buttons, which trigger slide-in windows with full definitions of terms.

ECIL had no established identity, so as part of the project we defined a color palette, choose appropriate fonts, sourced imagery, and made other design decisions as part of defining an online brand.
