Winning Project: WSDOT Website Redesign

We partnered with WSDOT to redesign their website with improved user-centered information architecture, content strategy, and accessible responsive design. We used a Human-Centered Design strategy of discovery and research, design and development, evaluation and iteration, and finally, launching the website.

We worked with WSDOT to:

  1. Identify their primary users
  2. Identify what their audience needs to accomplish when they visit the WSDOT website
  3. Ensure primary users are able to successfully find and understand information
  4. Make the website accessible on any device
  5. Decrease the overwhelming amounts of content and pages to reduce confusion from old, outdated information
  6. Create a governance structure with associated training to better position the content editors to work together to create and maintain content based on user personas and data

The result is a complete overhaul of the design of the site, a reduction of content from 14,000 pages to less than 2,000, and clear content layout.

The new digital product is useful, usable, and accessible on any device, and users can find the important travel information they need quickly and efficiently without frustration.
