VODG

VODG was one of the last projects with my time at Pixeldot. It was very similar to the Bruce Shaw project regarding the UX research and design that went into it.

VODG was one of the last projects with my time at Pixeldot. It was very similar to the Bruce Shaw project regarding the UX research and design that went into it.

For the start of the project, it was investigating what the site is, and what was unique about the company. This discovery and definition happened over a meeting with the client, where we tried to define how they saw the company, what it does, who its competitors might be and much more.

From here we took our findings from the meeting and had a crawl through the site. Crawling the site allowed us to see what pages they had and how we could re-map that to a brand new website. We found the most prominent sections and tried to define a new way in which they would work.

There was quite a unique system that the client needed within their site, and this was to re-think their current sign up model. Their signup model consisted of them contacted by their users, to which they would send out the appropriate forms for them to sign up. Their users were charities, meaning they would only be working with emails with separate domains.

We rethought this whole system using a step by step form, which dealt with all the details on the physical applications, but I thought down the line and made it much easier for any employee of that organisation. Rethinking this would allow any variation of a proved email domain to be able to view their organisations content through VODG, speeding up the process and work needed from VODG.

VODG is a perfect example of a website done with the user’s experience in mind. To view the site check the screen capture below or inspect the site here.
