RSL Art Union

Status: currently accepting registrations

RSL_ArtUnion_Logo-transparent

We are teaming up with YOU and RSL Art Union to offer you real world experience during the online UX program. Our client will be the RSL Art Union who provide much needed funds to returned veterans and their families in Australia. Returned veterans often find it difficult to reintegrate into mainstream society as a result of both physical injury and the harmful mental effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Through their Prize Home Lottery, the RSL Art Union delivers critical funding that supports returned veterans from recent conflict, as well as those on the long journey to recovery from past deployments, in the form counseling, financial aid, accommodation, rehabilitation and much more. You are invited to play a key role in working on a project to improve the digital experience in order to optimise fund raising efforts and ticket sales in order to support returned veterans and their families.

By the end of the UX Accelerator you'll have an impressive project portfolio demonstrating end-to-end UX design capability and the process you went through.

UX portfolio artefacts you will produce

Complete the program with a unique portfolio demonstrating not only your artefacts but also demonstrating the process you went through including:

  • A high level current state evaluation of a website site with suspected problems and hypotheses
  • A customer research plan, a persona & user stories
  • Paper prototype for a new digital solution
  • Design and run a remote card sort activity in Optimal Workshop
  • A primary navigation menu (first level information architecture) for the project site
  • An expert review, and a redesigned sketch or wireframe of a form
  • An expert UX review of the site or app against usability heuristics and design guidelines

Project outcomes

"Thanks so much for having Surf Lifesaving as a case study. Both myself and Mel thoroughly enjoyed the presentations and insights [from the UX Accelerator Team] . . . the presentations have been particularly valuable to both of us as newly appointed members of the Surf Lifesaving Foundation.

We are truly impressed with the work that Veronica has done and it reflects extremely well on the in-depth and practical approach to UX that you provide the students at PeakXD . . . there are some really great suggestions, insights and prototypes created off the back of her research. Not to mention the quick wins that we could implement!!!"

Success Stories

See what our students say

"As someone new to the concepts I found the course right on target and very informative. The activities were well spaced, of appropriate length and meaningful."

Alison Namer

Department of Human Services

"The course was helpful in affirming some techniques I have heard of, but I feel better equipped to use them in the right way."

Kate Hogden

Australian Crime Commission

"This was fantastic and I think the principles of this course could be very valuable to many people in my organisation, even those not directly involved in digital projects."
