The Brief

Envisioned as a new, leading edge digital publication for the media industry, Mi-3 was born out of a desire to address some of the challenges in the Australian media landscape. In order to bring the vision to life, the team at Mi-3 partnered with Aleph to imagine then craft the Mi-3 digital experience.

Approach

We started with a design sprint where the Mi-3 team was able to rapidly move from their initial vision to a working prototype that we could validate with customers. 

Our team was able to then quickly iterate and evolve the design and move into technology planning and design, where we focused on creating a highly usable, visually engaging and beautiful digital publication that would allow the Mi-3 team to distinguish their offering in the Australian media landscape.

Drupal was chosen as the CMS platform as we felt the benefits of the open source community and intuitive way publishers could use the platform would be well suited to what the Mi-3 team needed. By implementing Drupal 8, Mi-3 was able to create and manage natively responsive content, integrate with advertising partners and intelligently manage email campaigns and newsletters using a dynamic ‘publish once’ approach.

Results

Within 8 weeks we were able to take the Mi-3 team’s vision through an Agile, customer centric process, including regular testing, design, development and implementation and training for their Drupal 8 CMS. 

By working Agile, starting with a Design Sprint and leveraging our international teams we were able to deliver the project far more cost effectively than similar projects.
