Information hub

Redesigning the online hub for historic information for students and education institutions

Project outline

British Online Archives (BOA) is an online hub for historic information, which is useful to students and education institutions. I worked with the team behind the BOA to redesign the website and provide advice on the user journeys and user experience.

In the beginning of the project, I was provided with some early wireframes that we further developed. But the problem we encountered was that the BOA was a little faceless. So I created some simple identities that could potentially solidify BOA as a recognisable brand and I also created a working styleguide to help them with the development process.

UI Design

Designing the face of history for students and institutions

While the brand identity concept wasn't used, it didn't take too much away from the visual design. Over the course of a few weeks, I engaged with the team behind BOA throughout my design process to discuss certain elements and features. I took the responsibility of converting their wireframes and turning them into a visual design and worked on several iterations to find the best solution throughout the process.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the team behind British Online Archives; doing all the visual design and communicating different ideas to try and improve UX for the many pages I created for desktop and mobile.
