United Nations

A New Window to the World.

United Nations an intergovernmental organization whose purpose is to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations. It is the world's largest and most familiar international organization.

As a design contractor, I redesigned multiple web projects at the UN website with high volume of daily visitors: The Sustainable Development Goals website, UN WebTV, UN Photo, UN Audiovisual Library, and UNifeed.

Challenges
  • Web design methodologies had evolved a lot since their last update. How can we gain their trust with our design process in our limited timeframe?
  • Each department with their own web properties takes pride of their work and identity. How can we unite them to create a more simplified system for their users?
Solutions
  • Clarify assumptions and get new insights and idea through user research.
  • Create a unified layout system for content on multiple websites.
  • Analyze the existing styleguide and expand it to accommodate new content types and needs.
Users
  • Media Professionals
  • Educators
  • Diplomats
  • General Public
Results
  • This is currently work in progress.
