Cultures Compass

Website Redesign

Background details

Humber Students created Culture's Compass for the benefit of the arts community. It seeks to highlight themes relevant to the current arts and culture climate and highlight and celebrate the accomplishments of industry professionals and artists. Culture’s Compass is not only an initiative that brings together the arts and culture communities, but a space to innovate and envision the future possibilities of the arts.

Roles: Web Developer, UI

Duration: 7 weeks

Business Needs

Culture's Compass recently hosted its first-ever two-day virtual conference. In order to reflect the event's details, registration information, and organizational initiatives, the website required an update. Prior to the redesign, the website contained information relevant to the 2020-2021 period. Furthermore, the website's navigation, consistency, and standards needed to be improved, as one of the website's goals is to serve as a resource for art professionals within the arts and culture community.

Process

Information Architecture 

Looking at the existing site, my team and I conducted a content audit to understand what information existed, followed by requirements gathering by looking at what content we would use in the new design and where within the website it would live. We also brainstormed user-flow diagrams and created a site map to structure the revised information architecture before sketching and wireframing.

Sketching, Prototyping

Once we figured out the organization of the information,
we created a mood board to help
with the sketching and wireframing process.
