Already having familiarity with this community, I was able to understand the audience and quickly set up 3 user interviews and do an affinity analysis off the interviews.
Based off the user interviews and affinity analysis I put together a site map for the new website.
Sketches and Wireframes
The information architecture enabled me to begin sketching out mock-ups and wireframing the new website.
With the wireframing done in Sketch, I was able to create interactions using InvsionApp to get a sense of the flow.
Using sketch I was able to create a high fidelity visual design for the production-ready site with all the latest UI trends.
After going through the design process in a very short amount of time, I was able to turn around an updated and a more user friendly website for this community. You can see the before and after below for reference.
