Deep Ocean Education Project

NOAA and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation were looking to create a collaborative website with three giants of the ocean; NOAA Ocean Exploration, Schmidt Ocean Institute, and Nautilus Live – Ocean Exploration Trust. This website seamlessly connects the resources on all three contributing partner’s sites to a collaborative educational hub; the Deep Ocean Education Project. We’re beyond proud of this design and site build.

Deep Ocean Education Project – Global

The Design

The Gecko creative team knew the Deep Ocean Education Project website needed to be something special. With access to thousands of gorgeous photos curated by NOAA, we were off to the races. The typography and graphic elements throughout the site are both clean and compelling to highlight the stunning photography and videography from the partner organizations.

On the homepage, you will find a Netflix style slider where several featured Resources are easily digested. From there, a user can “Explore” all Resources, or add the featured ones to their own Educator Collection.

Beyond that, there is an entire page dedicated to the three magnificent vessels of the contributing partners; NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, E/V Nautilus, and R/V Falkor.

Gecko Designs was absolutely thrilled to work with several important leaders in science and technology and are beyond proud of the new Deep Ocean Education Project. Are you interested in crafting a stunning user experience for your clients? We’d love to help.

Gecko took over a very complicated project when another agency wasn't able to finish, and we are very pleased with the partnership. The team is knowledgeable, efficient, excellent communicators, and adept problem solvers. So happy to be working with them.

After experiencing severe email deliverability issues for weeks, which is a huge problem for a small business, Gecko Designs was able to jump in and immediately uncover what was wrong and resolve the problems. They were extremely professional and helpful and I'm very grateful they got us up and running smoothly again.

We've worked with Gecko for nearly a decade. They've delivered two complicated sites for us and are always quick to help when we have a request or bump into an issue. They're great to work with, responsive, and solution oriented!

We found Gecko Designs when we were in a huge bind with another website developer. Gecko jumped in and handled a huge technical project for our agency, and was a true pleasure to work with. We appreciated the thoughtfulness they brought to the project, and look forward to working with them again!

Because the service we received greatly exceeded our expectations; I wish more stars could be added to this Gecko review. When our firm, Briggs Architecture, relocated to Missoula in 2016, our website and brand did not reflect the desired image. Gecko listened to us, understood our mission, and helped us breakdown what seemed to be an insurmountable problem into manageable pieces and then brought it all together creatively. Gabe, Melissa, Kate and the whole Gecko team continue to update our website and manage our Google presence. They are very professional and fun to work with and I am more than happy to refer Gecko as the best provider with whom we've worked.
