Case Study: Crown of Life Christian Academy


Branding & Web Design for Crown of Life Academy

Crown of Life Christian Academy is a new private school in the Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin area providing quality education for kids from pre-k through 8th grade.

The greatest challenge of opening a new school is effectively announcing your presence in the area as a legitimate institution for children to receive a great education that prepares them for future success.

To accomplish this, Crown of Life assembled a strong marketing committee of advocates to weigh their options. The committee came across Signalfire’s previous work, and decided to contact us for assistance.

More specifically, they requested our help with branding their new academy, including the design of a distinct logo and seal as well as business cards and stationary. We were also asked to develop a new, user-friendly website that would provide information to potential students’ families.

Signalfire’s Creative Services

 We started with designing the brand, and the process went very smoothly thanks to Crown of Life’s dedication and personal investment in the project.

“The Crown of Life Academy committee was very organized and focused on the end result they had envisioned,” said Signalfire Project Manager, Lisa Oren. “They had a clear idea of what they wanted, and we were able to bring it to life.”

Signalfire’s creative team effectively designed:

  • A professional seal logo that projects an academic focused school
  • A versatile school logo that can be used in multiple applications including uniforms, website, promo pieces, etc.


Mobile Responsive Web Design

With the logo, seal, and branding style completed, Signalfire began putting together a top-notch website to attract families and provide an environment for school information to be housed and shared.

“Crown of Life wanted a website that effectively communicated their commitment to providing students with a rigorous academic experience in a Christian environment,” commented Website Project Manager, Sarah Lobdell.

“We worked closely with the committee throughout the entire process to make sure the website worked for prospective families, as well as served the needs of currently enrolled parents and students.”

We provided a WordPress website that utilized several requested features, including:

  • A financial aid calculator
  • Calendar and countdown features
  • Integrated video
  • Dual navigation bars in the header

When reflecting on this project, it’s no coincidence that the key to its success was honest and effective communication between Signalfire and the Crown of Life Marketing Committee.

“Overall, people think the site is absolutely FANTASTIC! It’s super easy to use, plenty informative, and very professional. In short, it’s everything we set out to do, and Signalfire made it happen, so thank you!” – Aaron Winkelman, Crown of Life Committee Member
