Adam came to me looking to improve the functionality of his website Architable. The content was structured more like a spreadsheet which wasn't so user-friendly, hiding the most relevant information behind horizontal scroll bars and pop-up menus.
We decided that making an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) would be the smartest route for us to concentrate on a single task, sharing professional interview stories. Our goals were to create a minimalist design that would be scalable over time, and to design components that are consistent throughout the entire web experience.
We found that the average user spends longer than an hour searching for jobs online, so we designed the website using soft dark tones to help reduce screen fatigue. We tested several prototypes using InVision further improving the usability of the sidebar and advanced filter. Since the web developer and I both work remote, I used Zeplin to speed up his workflow, seamlessly converting Sketch files into measurement guides.
