Engineers Australia (EA) is the nation’s largest and most influential member association representing engineers from across all disciplines.
Representing more than 100,000 members, EA provides engineers with training and development, accredits the institutions delivering tertiary education, and assesses the skills of engineers from across the globe.
EA’s website is the digital front door to their organisation and the primary way members and non-members engage with the brand. It also serves a diverse range of audiences with different needs, including non-members, engineering employers, and partners.
Aligning with EA's strategic goals, Icon was tasked with designing and developing a new Drupal-based website using best practice, UX-led thinking.
Icon used a thorough testing process to establish the best way to lay out content and display a complex information architecture on the new website. Our solution helped break through the traditional use of a horizontal menu system, replacing it with a hamburger menu that could more easily accommodate the website's structure.
We worked closely with EA and their stakeholders during the design and development phase to ensure their content team had the required web components to create and maintain content on the new website. Over twenty web components working across different content types were designed and developed during the process.
The final outcome is a modern and clean website with an easy-to-use navigation system. A more intuitive backend for content creation accommodates over twenty web components available for content editors to utilise.
This wouldn’t be possible without the close-knit working relationship with Engineers Australia’s project team and its stakeholders.
