The newsroom at Johns Hopkins Medicine was established as a resource to provide science and health reporters with access to information found in articles and other media authorized by JHM experts. The goal of the project was to deliver a more organized display of information to reporters searching worldwide.
To not only provide an optimized experience for the end-user, but to make the experience for those updating the content much more manageable. Previous to the new website, the content was updated on a daily basis, often multiple times a day, by the Newsroom team. In order to make this experience less of a hassle, we provided them with templates to streamline the process.
Before design could begin, Axure was used to establish a list of components, along with a template structure for a few of the pages within the platform.
Responsive designs play a key part in the final design of the Newsroom website. Being able to have immediate access to articles and video libraries was essential to the end-user, who is often times looking for information at unusual times. We made sure to provide an experience that was consistent across all devices, and was flexible to be able to recognize each device and show content accordingly without overwhelming the user.
