White Whale

Design, content, and technology geeks in service of schools around the globe.

Services & Sectors

A list of template types is usually what gets us in the door.


But as we’ve grown and changed alongside our clients, we know there’s a lot more to it than that. Beautiful, responsive, award-winning pixels - those deliverables end up being maybe a third to half of our work these days.

But how will we get faculty on-board? Can we do all this work with part-time summer staff? How does this deliverable fit with the admissions print schedule?

We’re a full-service firm with deep experience in the higher-ed and independent school sectors. We’ve worked with individual departments, publications, teams, museums, and initiatives, all the way up to full-scale .edu redesigns—of which we tackle roughly 3–5 per year.


Here’s a list of the services that we provide, not including web committee talk therapist & budget sommelier, which are included in the project fee:

  • Research and Discovery
  • Branding & Messaging
  • Content Strategy
  • Information Architecture
  • Web Design
  • Social Media Strategy
  • Print Design
  • Responsive, Accessible Code
  • Usability Testing
  • CMS Implementation
  • Writing and Editing
  • Teaching & Workshops

No matter where you are in the process:
RFP, pre-RFP, ASAP, or WTF -
we’re happy to talk.
