École Saint Bernard Sainte Marie

pre and primary school, Paris

École Saint Bernard Sainte Marie is a catholic pre and primary school situated in the mixed neighbourhood of the Goutte d’Or, in Paris.


The website presents many photos of the pupils in class and during activities, and so reflects the ambiance in this small school. To encourage parents of existing pupils to visit regularly, the website includes a news section (“Vie de l’ecole”) with full screen slide shows and, amongst other useful information, the current school lunchtime menu.

The website is based on a customised responsive WordPress theme, which is optimised for all types of devices from computers and tablets to smart-phones. The content management system allows teachers and the secretariat to initiate and edit their own content.

Visual identity

The letters of the word-mark (the logo) are decomposed into multi-coloured shapes. Playful in its typography, and equally suited for pre and primary school, we chose to discard the pre-existing leaf symbol.
