Last week The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) launched their new site . As corporate partners with RAINN, we are proud to have helped on this project and encourage everyone to make a difference in the lives of survivors of sexual violence by volunteering, donating, or simply spreading the word about the cause.
A project as important as RAINN meant we had to take a deeper look at RAINN’s unique audience and their needs. We conducted extensive user testing and research in order to understand what resources and information were critical to the needs of survivors and how that information could be effectively communicated.
RAINN User Research By The Numbers:
- 2 card sorts tests
- 20 in person interviews with survivors
- 500+ survivors surveyed
The information collected from this extensive research allowed us to develop an entire new information architecture for RAINN. Our findings show that survivors will now be able find the resources they need at a much quicker pace, helping to make a harrowing and stressful time a little easier.
