Project description

The Ecole Normale Supérieure is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in France in the field of science and literature.

Its 9 libraries contain hundreds of thousands of books, and collections developed since the 19th century in these fields. 

In 2019, the network has chosen to redesign its website, in order to give better access to information to its visitors, and a better understanding of the network, while modernizing its image.

Project specifics

The particularity of the ENS is to be a network, and consequently to be constituted of 9 entities with common needs but also each one its specificities. It was thus necessary during the graphic design to juggle with the common interest of the project, and the need of the user to simplify, while respecting the identities and needs of each library.

The site is also a portal, which allows access to information from the database but also to external databases, so it was important to integrate them functionally and ergonomically while making the experience easy and non-confusing for the visitor.

The team dedicated to the complete project

The almost daily work on this project was carried out by a dedicated team. All the members of this team have worked in close collaboration.
