Manager, Training and Workforce Development, Phoenix Australia

We worked with Curio’s UX designers to create a unique look and feel for our courses. They reviewed our brand guidelines and existing client feedback around key pain points and quickly produced a set of customised templates and associated bespoke code which are very easy to use, clean and visually engaging. We have had a lot of positive feedback since implementing the templates, both internally and externally.

Curio has worked with a wide range of leading education organisations
