The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) is an independent not-for-profit organization that invests in research facilities and equipment in Canada's universities, colleges, research hospitals, and non-profit research institutions

Through a digital agency partner, Input UX worked with the CFI to reimagine its website, improving the overall experience and accessibility to information. This exercise involved working with a large group of internal stakeholders first to develop a new information architecture and validate it with users across various audience categories through iterative tree testing. Specifically, our responsibilities for this engagement included:

  1. Performing iterative tree testing with external stakeholders and detailed reporting
  2. Planning and conducting usability studies with internal CFI stakeholders
  3. Developing responsive, high-fidelity prototypes depicting more than 30 unique screens across the website
  4. User interface design development and supporting front end developers
  5. Overall project management and liaising with back-end development vendors

Engagement details

Following our usability studies, we then prepared an extensive set of 30+ responsive, high fidelity prototypes to depict the proposed user experience, layouts and interaction behaviors across desktop, tablet, and smartphone. We validated this prototype with internal stakeholders over three iterations, making incremental improvements during each round.

With a validated prototype, we developed user interface designs that adhered to the foundation's recent rebranding work and introduced a modern approach to content presentation and UI design.
