UX Design for the Cruise ship page
UX Research Methods: Site Audit of what components and modules we have, Competitors Analysis, used SketchApp to create the UX Wireframes
- User interaction only provided a very low conversion rate
- We needed only one clear conversion goal of getting a new user into the search pages, and then make sure every element of your page supports this conversion goal.
- The one CTA (call-to-action) button always visible, so the user can decide any time.
- We needed to break up long content with subheadings, bullets and improve formatting to make it easier to read.
UI Design for the Cruise ship page
I decided it was more structured with the use of the components and modules! I started with the areas that had the greatest potential to improve conversion rates.
- I increased the font size and spaced out so it’s easier to read
- Developing a Style Guide within the Design Team for UI components and modules, Typography, Buttons, Colour Palette
- Example: Added pulse animation on buttons that will work on all devices so the user knows when they have clicked, CSS hover effect won’t work!
- Designed and built reusable Components and Modules Library which use there own individual style sheet so can update once and will update throughout the website
