The User Research work will include benchmark accessibility and usability audits of the existing sites focussing on areas that form key parts of the museum’s forward-thinking strategy and organisational objectives as a whole.

We are focussed on getting the UX right for a wide range of users, some of whom have been long-term visitors to the museum, whilst some are new faces who need help with signposting.

As with many design projects, we will have to carefully balance the information architecture and design work to both help support the museum's strategic objectives and creatively provide streamlined key user journeys.
