BEAM aims to bring together a globally engaged group of professionals, incentivised to share their knowledge and learning. This meant the website needed to be low bandwidth and accessible to all.
BEAM started with a User Enquiry to inform the project. They were able to talk people within the field of market systems development to investigate what information they need, what terms they understand and how they like to operate. This gave a good basis of understanding that informed the kickoff of the website project during the discovery phase. This included a workshop, wireframe mockups and the beginning of the visual design process. We then proceeded with an agile process which allowed us to start building functionality right away in order to meet the tight deadline.
