We were engaged to redesign the State Library of Victoria’s services. Over a twelve week period we led an integrated, participatory design team to understand current state service delivery; identify opportunities for service improvement and innovation; generated, prototyped and tested concepts; and laid out a future vision for service delivery covering everything from the iconic front lawn to offsite storage 100km away in Ballarat.

The new service designs set the organisation up for a digital future; changes in public attitudes towards cultural institutions; the changing role of State Libraries; and address funding gaps between public expectations and current funding levels.

The following video provides some insights into our work.
