Angus & Robertson has been a major player in the Australian book industry since it was started by two migrant Scotsmen in Sydney in 1886. Angus & Robertson was a success and expanded to have stores in every major Australian city, becoming an iconic Australian name for book buyers through being a consistent and widely available outlet for Australian book-buyers. In 2011 Angus & Robertson closed their last physical store and became an 100% online business.
After a strong focus on creating a consistent site experience via faster response times and other key aspects of performance, A&R is now turning toward improving the user experience as their next focus of works to upgrade their customer experience.
This brief focuses on a reimagining the Angus & Robertson website’s wishlisting tool, known as ‘My Library’. Students are encouraged to re-imagine how this tool could work on the Angus & Robertson website across desktop and mobile screen sizes.
