The project is currently under development but unfortunately there isn’t much we can show publicly right now. We can however tell you that having received a detailed brief and site map we spent some time on requirements gathering and market research before beginning wire-framing the key templates.
We’re taking a modular component based approach to the design and we have been designing the site to be flexible and responsive across devices. We began by designing components for the homepage which were turned into a HTML based prototype from which both Shearings and ourselves have carried out usability testing on.
The results of the testing have been overwhelmingly positive and proven some of our theories. However, we carry out the testing for a reason and it has also shown several areas where improvements can be made which we’re currently addressing.
The collaborative, iterative process of working with the Shearings team is working well and we look forward to it continuing for the rest of this project and beyond.
