University Bookstore

We did user experience and information architecture work for the University of Minnesota Bookstores redesign, which we built on Drupal Commerce. It involved a responsive redesign for PC, tablet and mobile devices, followed by the implementation and migration from the legacy site. The site is awaiting internal logistics to launch.
