Problem, limitations, solution
Deliver accurate shopping results; make those results easy to digest, understand and compare. Create a trustworthy shopping experience that is compelling and rewarding.
Limitations were multifaceted — resources, timing, real concern about impacting the conversion rate negatively, even momentarily (as is very often the case with major design changes).
Fostering a shared vision supported by qualitative data, implementing experience/Ui changes incrementally and A/B testing to gain quantitative insights.
Results included, significant increases in conversion rates, greatly improved product experience (branding, Ux, Ui) which in turn led to higher levels of trust amongst customers and suppliers.
Meticulous iteration, research, and testing helped us evolve new design options to express the shopping experience.

Experimenting with profiles helped us understand some of the potential ways to extend the value of the customer relationship.
Conversion rates were very low on mobile, despite respectable traffic. Applying what had been learned from the work done on the desktop app, the experience was completely redesigned, re-engineered, and relaunched.
Design sprint for mobile
This process allowed us to tackle a cross-section of challenges with a diverse and committed team. In-depth prototype testing in contrasting markets resulted in a successful product relaunch (+65% conversion rates).
Prototyping for mobile
High and low fidelity prototypes were used in testing.
Customer behavior mapping
Illustrating essential insights about the decision-making processes of the audience were used to support design proposals.
