A digital ecosystem on text and imagination.

Encodage is an online tool for searching, consulting and cataloguing the varied contents of the different research chairs in literary studies at UQÀM, driven by NT2.


February to April 2022


Produced for the NT2 Laboratory, a research laboratory on hypermedia works at UQÀM.

Project cover


I was approached in January 2022 to help the NT2 team. The programming of the site had already begun as an MVP had been produced for the future website. First, I proposed improvements in terms of user experience to enhance the tool's usability. Then, I suggested visuals to bring a new artistic direction to the website.

Main tasks

  • Audit of the existing MVP to identify fonctionnal pain points to improve user experience
  • New art direction and complete redesign of the tool's interface, including new pages
  • Adjustments and variations of the tool for tablet and mobile.

Final look

The visual ecosystem developed is minimalist, using only text and color blocks to structure the various contents, mirroring the layout of a double-page book. Since these contents are mostly texts, it allows to put all the attention on them. Finally, the orange color, used sparingly, distinguishes the interactive or important elements from the rest of the content.
