A redesign to help establish some structure to a growing website
The frustration of getting lost in their own website pushed Quest Technology Management to want to redesign their site. Quest Technology Management is a company of IT professional that provide reliable technology and customized plans to help companies avoid an IT disaster.
The challenge for this project was to re-organize the website to make it functional for the client and its users, while maintaining all of the original pages.
Strategy > Wireframes > Style Development > Screen Design
Reorganizing the Quest website was a massive task that required me to use a different method when establishing the site’s new structure. I led an exercise called card sorting with the Quest Team, in which they grouped and categorized the webpages into buckets. The end result was this sitemap.
I played with Quest’s colors and imagery to create a style that fit with their brand. I added elements, such as the subtle line pattern on the blue background, to compliment the logo and add more interest.
My goal for this redesign was to create a website that was easy to navigate and use. I sought to achieve this by creating a simple navigation that highlighted what Quest has to offer and how they can help. Additionally, I incorporated a search button at the top of the page to allow users to search the site for specific information.
Another component that I added to the website to help facilitate the task of finding information was creating a resource page. The resource page allows the client to easily find blogs, solutions briefs, and white papers. They can keep the resources organized by tagging them with categories.
Given the large size of the website, I focused on creating a design that was adaptable to all the different pages on the website.
