We’ve helped many organisations – large and small, government and commercial – conquer complex content problems, create user-focused content, and put processes and people in place to measure and maintain it.
As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. Below is some of our pudding. (We’re happy to provide more on request.)
Find out how the Ombudsman can help
To make it easier for people make a complaint about NSW government agencies – and understand the process – we wrote accessible content and designed a new information architecture for the NSW Ombudsman website. And to document their vision, content practices and priorities, we developed a clear content strategy.
NSW Department of Customer Service
Access to critical COVID-19 information
At the height of the pandemic, the NSW government urgently needed to update COVID-19 information on nsw.gov.au. We designed a new information architecture that better organises critical and constantly shifting information, reduces duplication, and makes it easier for the Department to maintain.
Making it easier to engage and take action
With multiple websites and over 10,000 pages of content, we worked with BirdLife to envisage a more streamlined future-state ecosystem. We designed a new information architecture and content types to make it easy for users to learn about birds, donate, volunteer and join a campaign online.
Better ops leads to better content for customers
That’s what we helped Atlassian prove. Through co-design workshops, we identified challenges and opportunities in their current content development process, and delivered an operations model to better support the content design team.
NSW Boating Handbook
Staying safe on the water
Published by Transport for NSW, the Boating Handbook is a trusted guide to the rules for using NSW waterways. We applied our content design skills to transform complex regulations and technical maritime concepts and terminology into clear information everyone can understand.
NSW Road User Handbook
Clearer rules, safer roads
The Road User Handbook is the go-to resource for getting your driver licence in NSW. Transport for NSW’s decision to digitise the hardcopy version gave us the chance to create better content. We removed duplication, aligned the terminology, and made information easier to find, understand and learn.
Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC)
Clarifying new standards for financial advisers
To help financial advisers understand and meet their obligations under new professional standards, we transformed complex regulatory information into clear step-by-step guidance and improved the information architecture for relevant sections of the ASIC website.
Helping people make better decisions
To align with a refreshed brand and strategy, we put our content design skill to work on the new Moneysmart website for the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). We applied our signature collaborative approach to designing clear, user-focused, goal-oriented and accessible content in plain English.
Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership
Giving users what they need
We asked Victorian teachers and principals what information they needed to make the right professional learning choices. Using insights from this research and content testing, we restructured the course page, identified opportunities for improvement, and rewrote the content for key courses for Bastow’s website.
Victorian Skills Gateway
Making better career decisions
The Victorian Skills Gateway is the most authoritative website for people looking for vocational training in Victoria. We worked with the team at the Department of Education and Training to create content for a new task-based structure that put the user first – helping everyone make better career decisions.
Championing plain English
Coliban Water’s website is an important resource for its customers. We came on board to convert a mountain of technical content into a practical website – one that was genuinely helpful and useful. We moved the focus to the user and created clear and effective content.
Department of Justice and Regulation
Lifting project compliance and success
To streamline project management at the Department, we developed a content strategy, created a new information architecture and rewrote content for their internal project management tool – making it easier for everyone to use and comply.
Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT)
Improving the customer experience
VCAT is Australia’s busiest tribunal. We created content for a suite of standard correspondence and hearing notices to help people understand VCAT’s processes – in plain English and consistent with their legislative requirements.
Making fitness easier
We designed the page templates, developed the wireframes and wrote high-level functional specifications for a new Active Moreland website. Booking a pool lane, signing-up for a fitness program, becoming a member or joining a local sports club has never been so easy.
Northcote High School
Connecting with the right audience
The school wanted their new website to reflect their values and culture, promote their offerings, and be easier to manage. We helped them achieve all this by defining the audience and their needs, designing a new information architecture, writing new content and creating page templates for the new CMS and design.
Bureau of Meteorology
Starting the content transformation
The Bureau of Meteorology is embarking on a series of projects to improve the usability of its products and services. We helped them prepare a high-level content strategy demonstrating how content skills could elevate the UX team’s work and what needed to be done to put the plan into practice.
Digital Transformation Agency (DTA)
Clearer, simpler services
We helped the DTA create their Content Strategy Guide. Co-created with government agencies, the guide helps to develop the processes to create, structure and manage content more efficiently, as well as build the capability of teams in content strategy methodologies.
National Debt Helpline
Clarifying complex information
People turn to the National Debt Helpline when they’re in financial difficulty. For the website that supports the phone line, we consolidated content from multiple sites to create clear content that guides users to the information they need quickly and easily.
Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages
Navigating significant life events
The Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria has been recording significant life events for over 160 years. We designed clear, easy-to-understand and accessible content on sensitive topics – content that steps users through complex processes and tasks.
A framework for creating better content
We helped Suncorp’s eCommerce team develop a content production framework and associated resources to support their customer experience approach. The framework integrates with their agile environment and adapts to their other brands.
Creating customer-friendly information
GWMWater provides water services to over 70 urban towns in Victoria. We created content for their website that reflects their informative and friendly personality, as well as the processes and resources to help their team maintain it.
Financial Counselling Australia
Equipping financial counsellors
We helped the national body for the financial counselling industry improve the content and resources in a toolkit for professionals in the field. We transformed a list of links to a topic-based structure that curates useful resources and is easy to search.
City of Boroondara
Content for customers
Working with UX agency Parisfirst, we prepared a plan to review and rewrite Council’s content to support a customer-first design approach. We then turned 3,000 pages into 500 pages of user-focused, accessible and task-oriented information.
Balancing customer and legal needs
Supporting UX design agency Symplicit’s user research, we worked with the AAMI team to rewrite content about insurance products to make it easier for customers to understand, while keeping its legal integrity.
