The Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) engaged Digital Garden at its beginning stage to rebuild its two public websites -- AFMA.gov.au and PZJA.gov.au -- managed by AFMA and hosted on GovCMS SaaS platform.
AFMA had sought to partner with a digital provider on a phase 1 discovery which would form a part of the RFQ for the phase 2 design, development and testing of the two new sites.
To discover more about AFMA and PZJA users, plus internal stakeholders, Digital Garden ran the following activities:
- Project inception & user personas workshop
- User research groups/interviews & development of user needs
- Codesign workshop on user flows
- Information architecture (IA) concepts
- Tree testing IA with stakeholders
- Functionality requirements
While we ran the project during the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was seamlessly coordinated between Sydney and Canberra thanks to Digital Garden's long-established remote ways of working, method and tools:
- Presenting deliverables via video conferencing and screenshare
- Workshops using Miro virtual whiteboards
- Delivery of menu wireframes InVision
- Testing IAs via Optimal Workshop
- Cloud-based collaboration on documentation via Google Docs
