Summer in Japan is an educational nonprofit which hosts summer workshops for elementary and middle schoolers in Oita, Japan. Together, we crafted a brand new online education platform.


As a new platform with big ambitions, our work needed to balance making a splash with crafting a practical base for SIJ’s future business plans: developing an online international school.

Bright colors and clean design create an atmosphere of friendly professionality.


The details distinguish the SIJ experience from other academic sites: a user’s background and welcome text change based on local time, and instructors can freely add icons and emojis throughout headings.
