Solution

Hi-Fi Phone

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.

Interactions

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.
