UI Design, micro-interactions, design system, and building specifications document.
Initially, I worked on a UX design team to gather initial research and prototypes. I am now the lead, UX/UI Designer, and with the help of an initial re-design package from a marketing agency. I am responsible to Iterate the design concept for the responsive website and coordinate the creation of it with developers.
The new design will invoke a minimalist branding aesthetic with slightly muted tones. The imagery leans into close up for product and model shots to articulate the ethos of the 4th Ave Market brands
Working closely with the 4th Ave Market team on creating the design elements. I created and developed various initial design study concepts explorations and iterated on them, always referring to the initial UX research in the design choices.
Following are examples on that process:
The re-design of the e-commerce focuses on delivering a user center experience, where you have a more interactive element that can help you find your new favorites products. The website integrates more video content and information like reviews from users to help find a better product that fits their needs.
We created micro-interactions to improve the experience of the users and help the developers to express the design intent of some of the elements.
Here is an example of an animation that helped communicating the design intent.
Using our design standards, I was in charge of creating a Specification Document for the client so that he could provide a framework for the developers to implement. Here are some of the pages we delivered:
Do usability test for Hi-Fi Desktop and Mobile Prototype
Develop the "My Profile Page"
Develop the "samples program" tool (currently in progress with the client)
