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.

I feel so lucky that we had Gecko Designs as our partner in redesigning our website. They were incredibly responsive to every question and idea, and everything they did was thoughtful, thorough, and quick. It was a pleasure to work with them!

After struggling for hours on a website problem I called Gecko Designs for help. They were able to fix my problem in just a few minutes and I was up and running. It's just so great to find a company that is professional, helpful, and easy to work with. I feel like I have a new partner in my business. These guys are the best.

Working with the team at Gecko Designs has been an absolute pleasure. Their team was incredibly easy to work with throughout every step of the process from initial brainstorming efforts and creative design, to development, and finally launch of the website. They were quick to respond to any questions I threw their way and always willing to work with me to find new and creative solutions for design challenges.

Could never reach them on the phone. Over promised and under delivered. They promise coaching and education but never follow thru.

Gecko built us a new Unity Hospice website from the ground up, as well as designing new brochures and other collateral material. Working with them has been a pleasure - they are professional, organized, responsive, aim to please, and are easy to work with. Their design work is beautiful, and they really took pains to understand the look we were going for. Highly recommended!
