Protostar Metrics

Based on AASHE's STARS for universities and colleges, Protostar provides comprehensive sustainability metrics for secondary and elementary schools. Protostar was commissioned by the Eight Schools Association in collaboration with Berkshire School. The founding schools required a robust and unique adaptation of the STARS django application.

Protostar seeks to encourage as many schools as possible to participate in its comprehensive sustainability metric system tailored to the unique experiences of secondary schools.

QC Creative collaborated with Lisa Kay Design and Voornas Creative to create a new brand identity and voice for Protostar. QC Creative then rebuilt the STARS software to incorporate the brand identity and provide a robust platform custom tailored to the needs of primary and secondary schools.

In the six months following the soft launch, the number of schools participating in Protostar increased by 133%.
