About the Project
Shibboleth provides world-famous identity management technology and is financially, technically and strategically supported by the Shibboleth Consortium and its 50+ global members.
With software relied upon by some of the most familiar academic, not-for-profit and commercial names, the support of the Shibboleth Consortium is a crucial cog in Shibboleth’s machine. Shibboleth’s old website was a bit of a maze for those seeking technical information about the software, and the benefits of becoming a Consortium Member were lost among the jargon.
We were chosen by the board to design an easy-to-navigate space that would simultaneously inform users about the Consortium’s role while encouraging users to become members.
Shibboleth’s existing Wiki already contains all the technical info a user could possibly need, so we wanted to avoid doubling up on any of that. Instead, we designed a concise support area that directs users to the Wiki pages most relevant to their query while highlighting the additional support they’d be entitled to as a Consortium member.
Speaking of incentivising membership, bold calls to action throughout the site make it simple for organisations to learn more and take the next step in joining.
Peppered throughout the site are fun features including animated graphs and an interactive member map which illustrate the vast reach of the Consortium and build credibility with the site’s users.
We pushed the boat out even further with custom graphics and carefully constructed copy to create an exciting identity that Consortium members would be proud to be part of.
