The United Nation Foundation's Digital Impact Alliance
Catalog of Digital Solutions
As a visual design agency that works with clients to tell the story of their data for a wide array of audiences, Graphicacy often works with our partners to build or improve digital experiences.
Graphicacy partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL), helping them do a top-to-bottom visual refresh of their Catalog of Digital Solutions. DIAL is a global leader in improving access to digital resources in the global development space, and the Catalog is central to that mission. We helped rethink and reimagine the design and functionality of the catalog, improving the experience for DIAL’s users.
For complex websites, catalogs, document libraries, and other digital tools, the design approach can be just as important as the engineering work and the content itself. If a user can’t figure out how to navigate through a site, or what the purpose of the site is, they will never find content that may be useful for them. Design can mean a lot of things on the web. It can be a visual refresh, applying a thoughtful eye towards color, typography, spacing, alignment. Or it can include structural improvements, re-thinking the navigation, menu systems, and how users flow from one page to another. It can be a user-oriented process, starting with interviewing the end users of the site, and asking them what works and doesn’t work for them. Whether a small engagement to find some quick improvements, or a top-to-bottom overhaul, investing in the design of your website is always worth it.
