W3C Website redesign: new Information Architecture, wireframes

Our website redesign work is shaping up nicely and although due to COVID-19 we’ve had a few understandable delays, we are nearing an important milestone as navigation design is about to begin:

Studio 24 have just published a new Information Architecture –and a summary of the content design work that informs it– as well as wireframes that illustrate the content hierarchy of key pages.

Note: the wires, which currently are “mobile first” (because starting from mobile ensures the best experience for the most limiting view), are quite likely to evolve and change a bit during the upcoming design phase.

The CMS choice is another important aspect of the project. Since the publication of Studio 24’s notes on CMS platform selection a month ago, slow progress was made: accessibility testing, conversations and one frustrating observation: many tools don’t really seem to consider accessibility from the onset which may have to make for difficult decisions around how we ensure editing tools are accessible for all users.

To put this update in context, the upcoming phases in this project are design & production, beta site setup, QA testing and launch.
