In 2020, the iview website needed modernisation to prepare for mandatory user login scheduled for 2021. At the time, iview was quite text-heavy, wasn't responsive, and lacked cohesiveness with other ABC websites.

We also took the opportunity to visually align with the wider collection of ABC websites. This enabled a shared product strategy across the portfolio.
