During my first few weeks at my CodeClan placement, I was asked to take a look at the current syllabus and see if I could make any improvements. Eager to impress I began re-designing the current and this is what I came up with. Personally, I think that’s the first example of when they found out that I wasn’t just a pretty face and that I was actually alright at graphic design!
Anyhoo… really happy with how this whole syllabus turned out, and I’m over the moon with how the icons and better use of negative-space gave a completely refreshed look to the existing syllabus. Most importantly, good design also helped to make fairly complex and overwhelming content much more easy to digest.
Although these syllabus’s were actually only ever available for digital download, I think they would have looked really great if they were to have been printed – so have mocked them up for your viewing!
CodeClan are a recent Scotland based startup who focus on transforming they way in which technology based skills are learned. Tuition in skills such as web development, UX, Agile are taught in an immersive environment – with the main “professional software development” course being a short course which gets its students job ready in just 16 weeks. They also offer bespoke courses to companies wishing to upgrade their staffs skills in tech.
My connection with CodeClan first started in January 2017 when I started a 6 month placement – which was a requirement of my marketing degree at Edinburgh Napier. When I finished the placement in May 2017, I must have done alright because they asked me to stay on in an upgraded role of marketing assistant over the summer. This also continued on a freelance basis after the summer when I returned to uni – for which I continued to work with CodeClan on marketing projects as best I could around my studies.
