Challenge

To re-design a webskin for the Edinburgh Libraries and Museums and Galleries image bank, to work with the CMS system that the libraries use. The existing site was difficult to navigate and we felt it could better reflect the rich quality of the content available.

Solution

We undertook user testing to identify user groups, needs and journeys. We then researched the CMS and assessed what could be done in line with our results. We moved on to design a webskin that looks fresh and is intuitive to navigate. We supplied designs to iBase who built the site.

Outcome

A thoughtful and elegant design solution, developed with the needs of the user in mind. The new-look site launched in February 2013, with a very positive response from library staff.
