What is it?

RevampIt is a complete end-to-end supply chain solution for mobile repair companies. They provide an automated inventory manager that manages inventory and buys line items that need to be stocked. They are a very ambitious start up and are currently seeking additional capital to assist them with their rapid growth and increasing operational costs.

The Challenge

They tasked me with redesigning their website and dashboard to make them more user friendly and to increase their overall usefulness, intuitiveness and sexiness. I begin this story by first understanding their customer’s needs more and then looking at how they are currently addressing those needs through a meaningful design. please see the below.

GETTING STARTED

After a conversation with the product owner, I identified his major concerns. He wanted the site to look more appealing and wanted to quickly engage the user. Specifically, he wanted me to consider changing the header by adding a quick view of the dashboard, to change the home page’s layout and to add more color.
The layout had to address aesthetics, loading time and usefulness to the end-users. In the current view, the company offers 2 core products, has two pictures and one video. According to https://www.deluxe.com ‘s article “your-website-has-five-seconds-to-make-a-lasting-impression,” a website has 5 seconds to capture the interest of its visitors. However, the thought of loading time posed as a challenge to the beauty of the page because large picture files would slow down the website; It needed to be both beautiful and functional. To address the beauty factor I performed some routine research. In the Journal of Young Investigators an Undergraduate Peer-Reviewed Science Journal, I found that “symmetry is attractive to the human eye.” I also discovered an article, “Ways to Build Trust with Good Web Design” on seonik.net that implied by adding pictures or changing headlines a website could increase its conversion rates by 200%-300%. I saw the video as being a must have because videos can quickly provide a customer a bird eye view of the product and it is a great way to engage the user with the technology. Pictures are a great way for a user to visualize a product and I wanted to keep the pictures to highlight the core services.
I envisioned a square evenly split into four smaller squares with a contrasting c.t.a. in the middle. I began my designs in typical fashion, on a piece of napkin. While ruff, it helped me to visual the design layout.
