Project: website redesign
Client: Human Factors and Ergonomics Society

Brief: Client wanted overhaul of member organization website. The site is large, with "members‑only" areas, as well as public pages. Design objectives were to make the site responsive, inviting, and easier for members to navigate and know where they were. Design directives were: "simple elegance," and "Good use of white space. Clean fresh, look."

The new website has dropdown navigation, a slider on the home page, news feed in the left column, and information on upcoming conferences in the right column. The member log‑in link brings up a modal window.

Member page redesign

Brief: When members log in to the website, they are taken to a personal membership page where they can update their profile, buy publications, search for other members, etc.

In the previous version of the site, it wasn't clear to members whether they were in the members‑only area of the site. This issue was addressed by directing the member to their own member page after log‑in, and by visual indicators at the top of the page.

Editorial layout redesign

Brief: Legibility and readability are important matters for an ergonomics association. UX standards were employed in the website redesign. The fonts used, the size and color of text, line‑length, and leading were all given careful consideration in creating layout styles for this website.

Publications section redesign

Brief: The publications section of the website presents the books, CDs, and papers published by the organization, which are for sale. Selection and purchase are a multi-step process. The design objectives were to improve the appearance of the pages, and to make clear to the viewer where they were in the purchasing process. The books page, shown here, would be the first page used in the selection/purchase process.

Website forms redesign

Brief: The forms for the redesigned website needed to be responsive: the layout had to adapt to the viewer's device. The objective was clarity, a clean look, and plenty of whitespace.
