The Story Behind the Redesign

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Martin Belam, Information Architect at the Guardian, has written a nice short blog post about his contribution to the UX Storytellers ebook: The story behind the redesign of Guardian Jobs.

As Information Architect at Guardian News & Media, I've contributed a chapter entitled "Using the right tools for the job". It tells the story of last year's redesign of the Guardian Jobs homepage. The key elements of the tale are some 'guerilla usability testing' at the London Graduate Fair, evolving designs from initial sketches to fully-fledged wireframes, and finally some lab testing of a mixed fidelity prototype at our supplier Madgex in Brighton.

The article features some interesting additional images of the Guardian Jobs redesign.
