Helping the PSNI to become leaders in digital strategy

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) wanted to have the leading digital strategy out of any police service in the UK and Ireland. Their new multi-award-winning website, designed by the Logic+Magic UX team, helped make that vision a reality. 

The Strategy

The Logic+Magic UX team, partnering with PSNI's brand and development teams, collaborated on a project aimed at transforming PSNI's website into a hub for improved communication and engagement with the public. Tasked with leading the design strategy, the Logic+Magic UX team, conducted extensive research to ensure that the website met the real needs of users. The overarching goal was to create a citizen-centric platform that provided enhanced digital services, including crime reporting, while making policing more accessible to all communities. The team also focused on refreshing and enhancing the content to offer valuable information to citizens, aligning with PSNI's vision of building a safe, confident, and peaceful Northern Ireland. Through this collaborative effort, the Logic+Magic UX team played a pivotal role in translating PSNI's vision into an accessible and user-centered online experience, fostering greater engagement and trust with the public.

The Solution

Logic+Magic's solution for PSNI focused on comprehensive research and collaborative strategies. They conducted desk research, analysed the existing website's performance, and engaged in primary research through online surveys and onsite visits. By creating personas and mapping user journeys, they ensured the new website met diverse user needs. Implementing card sorts and user testing, they refined information architecture and content language. With a meticulous approach to content creation and visual design, they optimised the user experience.
