Abstract. In this paper, we present a case study research on designing the system interface for handling organizational processes implemented in the editorial office of the AGH-UST Students Information Bulletin, which was developed based on the analysis of identified business processes. The basis for the design work is the analysis of the editorial work and system solutions that ensure its service. A~study of the basic formal and legal sources, such as regulations and statutes of the organization, was also carried out for the proper identification of goals, responsibilities, and organizational structure. To deepen this knowledge, social research was carried out, which examined how the users use the current solutions and what their needs are related to the designed system. On the basis of the research results and the formulated conclusions, the diagrams of business processes carried out in the organization were created, and the information architecture of the system, followed by a medium-fidelity interface were designed.
