Challenge

From its humble roots as a bi-monthly magazine publication, Australian Geographic has since grown to become a household name in science and technology education. With multiple publications and over 60 retail stores nation-wide, there was a critical need for a new e-commerce website to streamline its retail operations to a digital audience. Rysen was approached to not only design a new e-commerce shopping experience, but also help modernise and shape the new digital brand.
