The Dept of Education wanted to be best in class.
As the State Government's largest agency, the DoE needed a robust and highly intelligent web strategy.
The Department of Education (DoE) manages the State's 800+ schools throughout regional and metropolitan WA. The Department's commitment is "for every child to have a high quality education, whatever their ability, wherever they live, whatever their background" so it was imperative that the website was overhauled to help achieve this goal. The previous website had numerous user experience and content flow issues which put up severe roadblocks to users.
Equilibrium was engaged by the Department to develop a new website strategy, including information architecture, wireframing, prototyping and design. The site was then handed over to DoE's internal web development team for the build.
Equilibrium initiated several new design and IA features to improve the user experience.
