Dietitians of Canada (DC) is a national professional association that represents dietitians. DC has a diverse membership of over 5,000 dietitians nationwide. The association supports its members through advocacy, professional development and engagement and works to promote nutrition, health and foster growth in the industry. The mandate of the association is to advance the health of Canadians through food and nutrition.
Dietitians of Canada Web Redesign
DC needed a robust membership website to support its members and provide relevant information to the Canadian public. The focus of this project was to redesign the website to elevate the DC brand and consolidate various web properties for a seamless online experience for users. In addition, the new site required SalesForce integration as part of DC’s broader digital strategy.
The new DC membership website needed to seamlessly integrate with SalesForce for members pages, downloads, registration and payment. The new website also needed to display memberships and unlock member community pages depending on membership type and journal access.
In addition to the SalesForce integration, we redefined the information architecture for a better user experience. Information for members was mixed in with public information, making the content confusing and redundant.
Scope of Work
- Digital Strategy
- UX and Graphic Designs
Re-working the site navigation was a priority for this site. We spent a lot of time prototyping and wireframing the navigation, exploring a variety of options to ensure an intuitive experience for users coming to the website. We designed high fidelity wireframes to ensure that the structure of the website is as fleshed out as much as possible before entering the design stage.
The information architecture was restructured to consolidate content. Based on the project objectives, we were able to categorize content in a way that supported DC’s digital strategy and provided the foundation for user experience design.
A new digital home for our members was a space that was forward thinking, modern, attractive, easy to navigate and search and with improved tools to support members professional development and practice needs.
