For more than half a century Louise Kool & Galt has been the leading supplier of early childhood and elementary school learning materials, furniture and educational equipment to Canadian educators and students. With a storied history of quality and service we were thrilled to be tasked with designing not only a new website but establishing entirely new online visual standards for this amazing Canadian brand, in partnership with our friends at OA Solutions.
We’re not going to sugar coat it — as amazing a company and team as Louise Kool & Galt is there was a very visceral disconnect with that reality when it came to their previous website. A tear it down and build it up approach was requested and required. Incorporating aspects of their beautiful and colorful catalogue layouts we set to work establishing exciting new brand standards for this pillar of the Canadian education sector.
ReIntroducing Louise Kool and Galt
Marrying a WordPress front end running the super-flexible Nova One platform with a Java-based enterprise e-commerce solution, the iDD + OA team was able to achieve a seamless experience between the static and dynamic environments.
Happy Birthday LKG!
The end result of this labour of love was a 50th anniversary website that not only celebrates this amazing milestone with thousands of dollars worth of giveaways, and much more in coupons and discounts, but also seeks to resonate with a target audience that all Canadians hold dear to their hearts: our early childhood educators.
It was our great pleasure to work hand-in-hand with the great team at OA Solutions on yet another fantastic project as well as to work for the Louise Kool & Galt team whom were an absolute joy as stakeholders.
