The International Hydropower Association (IHA) is a non-profit membership organisation that serves as the voice of sustainable hydropower worldwide. We successfully helped them amplify that voice through a new website platform experience, launching in time to coincide with their 25th anniversary.
The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined hydropower’s resilience and critical role in delivering clean, reliable and affordable energy, especially in times of crisis. IHA needed a new web platform to enable them to amplify being the voice of sustainable hydropower worldwide.
The website had to both engage and educate the general public, while also encouraging industry professionals to join them in their commitment to hydropower.
Despite the challenges of remote working during lockdown, our teams were able to seamlessly collaborate through virtual workshops, and deliver success.
We worked with IHA to come up with information architecture for the site that catered for their wide ranging audience groups, creating interactive prototypes to validate against these core groups.
Utilising a component based design approach we addressed future requirements for the website, allowing for new areas of the website to be created both quickly and easily by the IHA team based on a flexible set of components.
A style guide details the design of each UI element so we can quickly create usable web page layouts by duplicating and combining components together. This leads to faster prototyping of new page designs in-house with the IHA team.
The project received 3 CSS design awards for Best UX, Best UI and Best Innovation.
