myWebRoom is a visual bookmarking tool which allows users to design a virtual room with real items they can buy. Users discover curated new content and organize bookmarks in folders in their web rooms. The shop’s main objective was to drive traffic to the site and boost our sign ups.
The old shop was poorly categorized and navigation was confusing. There was also a lack of visual hierarchy and clear call-to-action.
UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM - USING ANALYTICS, EMAILS, CONVERSATIONS WITH EMPATHY
- analyze our product’s existing design
- analyze our product’s existing flow
- checked analytics
- gathered feedback from users
We have a wide range of products live on our site. One of the initial steps of the design process was to categorize our products and categories and create a structural framework that makes sense.
DESIGN - USING BALSAMIQ, ADOBE FIREWORKS AND COLLABORATION
User flows, wireframes, prototypes, usability testing
Our most important page was the individual product pages where we hoped users would try a product in a room - and that is when they would be introduced to myWebRoom.
There are now clear categories and filters. Breadcrumbs are implemented to always let the user know where he is at. Clear CTAs are in place.
