Website design - Brand Development & App UI & UX for SharePoint & Office 365

As part of our education partner agreement we created a brand new website for BFC Networks' latest education offering - cloudclassroom. Using Office365, SharePoint Online & Office Online to create a seamless assignment process, in the cloud.


cloudclassroom is one of the many products from BFC Networks founded by Office 365 MVP Alex Pearce. BFC Networks are a leading Office 365 provider to the education sector allowing schools, councils and academy groups to take full advantage of the free offering to all teachers and students.

Working with BFC Networks we created a fresh new brand called cloudclassroom, we ran various sessions to gain the market, the direction of the brand and product as well as looking at the marketing materials from print to digital. Working closely with Alex Pearce we used a mix of design, typography & colour to connect with students & teachers/staff instantly with the new brand. We then created the user experience & interface in SharePoint 2013 Online for Office 356.

What we did...

Working with BFC Networks on cloudclassroom to establish their brand new education product.

A stylish, fresh new brand

We took time to understand their audience and developed their new brand that was modern and perfectly suited to their target market of education professionals.

An innovative & responsive web site

We wanted to keep things simple we built a single page website from scratch to enable users to interact with animation, hover overs & positional trigger points.

Keeping it simple

The website needed to be easily accessible on any device and the information readily available presented clearly. Using white space and colour contrasts we achieved this.

SharePoint Design & Branding

The next task was to focus on the user experience & interface of the actual app. Leaning towards the Windows UI that has been developed & used in Office 365 & SharePoint 2013/Online we used block colours & white icons as a starting point.

Application User Experience

We looked closely on the experience of the user, using termonology that was suitable for the different users at different staged of the app, whilst using clear buttons & blocks of content.

Going the extra mile

Not only have we created a range of marketing materials, website, application UI/UX we have also create and branded their social media platforms such as Twitter & Facebook. An example of how we always look to go the extra distance for our clients new & old.

The new brand has been received with much praise not only internally within BFC Networks but by their partners & even competitors within the education industry. The application is always evolving and as part of our continuous partnership we are looking forward in take the application into further development phases.

What the client thought...
"BFC Networks have continuously returned for extra work from Pink Petrol for a reason and we will with other websites that we have built both public facing and our Office 365 products. The new cloudclassroom is just one great example of the work the team can do for us."
