Government websites - the dream

organised folders

Government websites - the reality


Imagine a government website designed for, and by its users

Lets sort some cards! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

You should have....

  • Some NJC personas
  • A set of cards
  • Some blank cards (exciting)
  • Pens
  • Paper for any interesting thoughts, suggestions and ideas you might have
  • Motivation 🏊🏽

Lets begin

  • Look at the personas you have been given
  • Look through your cards, discuss, ask questions


Group your cards, talk through this process

  • Use the blank cards to add or replace existing cards
  • Which of these do you feel go togethor?
  • Are any groups more important than others?
  • Any cards you are unsure about - put aside

There are no right or wrong answers

Nice one, next...

  • Refine your groups
  • Label your groups
  • If you put cards aside, is there a way you can label them?

Now....sketch your own beta site! 🎷🎺🎸

  • Maybe focus on a few key services for a persona
  • It doesnt need to be detailed or perfect
