research design laboratory


Prior to us meeting in Montreal, Mél had mocked up some concepts for our site redesign. One thing we knew early on was that we wanted our process - where we draw inspiration, how we work, what we do - to play a fundamental role in the design. We’ve always made an effort to outline our process with clients so that they have a real sense of how we work and what expectations for the working relationship will be. It was from this desire to showcase our process that this eventual site design - one based entirely on process - emerged. Moreover, that little coloured tabbed menu to the top right of the mock-up - while initially an incomplete concept - suddenly developed into the coloured dot categorization that is also fundamental to the site redesign.
