Literate Nation is a well-established knowledge and support 501(c)(3) organization which has acted on behalf of educators and students from across America. Comprised of researchers, scientists, authors, advisers, advocacy groups, and a variety of educators in the United States, their team serves more than 20 million students who struggle to learn how to read and write. Through combined efforts, and the work of award-winning web design firm Vento Solutions, they have put together a stunning web application which acts as a platform upon which users can learn about current issues in education.
Their new website includes student and teacher resources, news, and opportunities for community involvement and contributions. Literate Nation delivers high-impact advice, expertise, and tools to ignite powerful, science-based literacy policies that enable state citizens to rally support around student literacy campaigns.
“We know what it takes for all students to become literate—to read for knowledge, to write coherently, and to think critically about the world around them—and we are going to make sure this happens,” describes the Literate Nation website.
In order to reach the widest audience and to accommodate technological advancements in education, Literate Nation employed Vento’s web design team to produce a site that is not only mobile ready, but utilizes modern web design techniques.
On Literate Nation’s amazing portal for resources relating to education in the United States, Vento implemented responsive web design (RWD) which allows for fluid layouts which transform the aesthetic of the site based on the size of the users screen. This results in cross-platform compatibility, ranging from mobile to tablet to desktop.
In addition, they used a methodology known as parallax design which creates a sense of 3D depth in an otherwise two dimensional medium. This is achieved through layer stacking and delayed scrolling which makes certain items appear to move at divergent speeds from that of the users natural scrolling.
