My role and who I work with
Web designer working alongside a brand designer (Janice Chen), a client and project manager
Figma (desktop, tablet, mobile), Shopify, Front-end (html, css, js), Slack
My main challenges included creating a user-friendly platform for a new business without an established brand or customer base. Additionally, I had to efficiently categorize and organize over 100 products for easy customer access. Accommodating a diverse audience with various cultural backgrounds and preferences was also complex, considering More Foods Mart's local presence in Vancouver.
To enhance the online shopping experience, we'll simplify navigation by organizing products into clear categories and implementing a user-friendly search bar. On the homepage, we'll prominently feature sales and promotions for easy access.
Additionally, we'll personalize the experience based on customer preferences using cookies and tracking. Our improved design, including a clear menu and mobile optimization, ensures a smoother product discovery and checkout process. Prioritizing clean usability and visual consistency is essential for building trust in e-commerce design.
