Objective on revamp
There were so many complains on the old website including the website and dashboard since the UI and UX were outdated.
Research - Art direction, Functions
We started to looking for other society of illustrators website on how they works and how they showcase members’ artwork. These included Society Illustrators Artists Designers, The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles and more. The best one we all love on styling and UX is Illustrators Australia.
We need to balance 3 main parties’ points of concern, HKSI, members and clients.
HKSI - hope to help member to get jobs, to encourage associate member to upgrade to professional member level
Members - hope to showcase and upload artworks more easily
Clients - hope to search easily
