Define

affinity diagram – HMW questions

After gather all the informations from interviews, I used affinity diagram to visualize my data and groups them into 3 different group. Then I rephrase my HMW questions to find the design opportunities and the problems I need to focused on. 

#HMW

– How might we bring user’s trust?

– How might we display and grouping all the different contents?

– How might we guide user through to fill out the contact form?

Ideate

brainstorming – competitors research

#How might we bring user’s trust?

– From user research

User want to know: who they will be working with, what kind of cases they did, how was it & what other customer says about them.

– From competitors research

Most consultancy web page have an experts section with real photo, contact info, LinkedIn links, title & location, experts topics.

#How might we display and grouping all the different contents?

From the original website, there are 9 different services. Through shareholder’s interview I found out even there no hierarchy among all the services but there is a logical structure. After discuss with my stakeholder, I decide to follow the logical structure to make all different services look visually constructive and change the icons to better fit the meaning of the services.

From my stakeholder research, they describe themself as young & professional consultancy. They want to redesign a website which is catchy, dynamic, clear, fresh & modern. 

I did a competitors analysis & a market position map to understand what other consultancies website look like and how they add brand personality and identity.

#Typography

Use Lora as primary font and combine Montserrat as secondary font and lato as information or system description font.

Primary font: Lora

Lora is a well-balanced contemporary serif with roots in calligraphy. It is a text typeface with moderate contrast well suited for both screen and print. The overall typographic voice of Lora perfectly conveys the mood of a modern-day story, or an art essay.

Montserrat is urban typeface use often on posters cause it clean and create a feeling of trust with it nice large X-height. “Lato” means “Summer” in Polish, semi-rounded details of the letters give Lato a feeling of warmth, while the strong structure provides stability and seriousness. “Male and female, serious but friendly. With the feeling of the Summer,” says Łukasz(Lato Font Designer).
