 → Context

Over the last few years, Normal Studio has grown significantly to over 30 employees. This expansion has allowed the business to develop new expertise and carry out a wide variety of impressive projects.

Normal Studio now wanted to update its website to reflect this new business reality and upgrade their digital platform.

 → Analys & UX:

To meet the needs established in the Normal’s mandate study, the Mill3 team proposed a discovery and in-depth analysis step. In addition to identifying and understanding the various personas of the studio, user paths were created for the new platform.

We then defined a list of objectives for each page developed in wireframe and specified their various KPIs.

Wireframe creation step & UX features :

This important strategy step allowed us to establish an action plan to align the new platform’s desire for performance with its redesign.

➀ →  Communicate the studio’s services effectively

➁ → Establish the features to develop to optimize the UX of the personas

➂ → Establish the complete and final sitemap

➃ → Establish key performance indicators (KPIs)
