(the design process) is about designing and prototyping and making. When you separate those, I think the final result suffers.
The desktop Dealogic platform gave users access to Company Profiles, Deal Profiles, Investor Profiles, a Deal Calendar, Origination opportunities and access to live deals and roadshows. The challenge was to bring all these features together to launch the company’s first App.
And in four months. But with a small team. No pressure!
I project managed the design structure and laid the foundations for the UI framework that would showcase the key desktop features. I set about producing the following with my team.
- Create the framework from the ground up
- Build wireframes
- Create prototypes
- Consolidate the colour palette
- Refresh the typography
- Create the asset libraries
By working Agile with stakeholders, Development teams, Technical Architects and the UX team I led the front end build of the app.
THE LOGIN SCREEN
The old login screen looked awful, dated and not fit for purpose. My idea was to create a minimally styled login page that was responsive and had a slick corporate edge to it.
