thierr6 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Educational and mentoring platform about the Python programming language
Check out thierr6's Web page design contest…
PlacePython is the name I've chosen for a french-speaking educational platform dedicated to programming using the Python programming language. It's main offer is one-to-one mentorship, in addition to written and video courses. As a professor at the University of Applied Sciences Fribourg (Switzerland), my goal is to build an online space where to publish my courses about good practices with Python and the use of its web frameworks. The public targeted by this educational platform are french-speaking students and graduated professionals seeking to learn more about good and professional development practices, mainly related to web development featuring the Python-related technologies. Accuracy and reliability of information are the two qualities I wish to convey. Place Python is by the way a square centrally-located in the city of Fribourg, Switzerland. I've chosen the name because of my passion for the Python Programming language (language named after the Monty Python's Flying Circus show, but also playing with the image of the snake) which I have been practicing and teaching for 20 years now. However, the Place Python square is also a square where people meet in Fribourg during summer music festivals and various other events. These ideas of meeting and community are as important as the ideas of professionalism and development good practices. Indeed, people potentially interested by the website already meet through a community on the discord chat server.
No existing website, no existing visual identity
I'd like to find a good balance between learning professional practices in a not so serious atmosphere. I'm looking for a design oriented towards (future) engineers, but playful, without however being childish. Gamification is a trend in teaching apps. I'm looking for fine-tuned balance Textual content in tutorials and longer courses will constitute the main deliverable of the platform. Readability counts.
- The homepage will highlight the last tutorials, the most popular courses, the next planned webinar and some invitation (call to action) to consult the one-to-one mentoring offer (which is the main paid offer of the site). Visitors will also be able to subscribe a monthly fee to unlock video content and exercises in courses. A PDF with learning tips will be downloadable from the homepage. - Page presenting the main product of the site: the one-to-one mentoring offer with testimonials. The promises: be mentored by an expert while (1) building tailor-made projects and a portfolio to find a job, (2) realizing your first missions as a freelance developer, and (3) starting a first job as a junior developer. - A typical page for a one-page tutorial. Readability is the main asset. No publicity, limited side columns disturbances: typography, code and educational illustrations are the key content of the page on all screen sizes. Most if not all the tutorials will also include videos and exercises. Videos and exercises will be unlocked by a small monthly subscription, written content being opened freely to everyone. At the end of the tutorial, some call to action will try to route students towards the one-to-one mentoring offer, promising tailor-made learning support. - a typical page for a multi-page course with practical navigation between section pages. Similar readability constraint as the one-page tutorial above.
What to avoid
I like black and white, with well chosen colors to drive actions, white being my color of the choice for the main background. Coloured backgrounds behind the main textual content reduce readability.
On the typography side, I'm not a fan a serif fonts for main textual content. I have access to Adobe products, Figma, Sketch and Invision Studio. Feel free to use the software that suits you most.
