The Challenge

Whilst working at MMT Digital, I was involved very early on the Vodafone project initially as a Design / Agile consultant.

This quickly expanded as multiple projects streams came to life; including exploring innovation concepts, redesigning key points of the purchasing journey on the main Vodafone Website and design UI components for the internal design system libraries.

My Role
  • Design Strategy & Consultation
  • Agile Consultation
  • User Experience Design
  • 
User Interface Design
  • Interaction Design
  • Prototyping & Testing

Working alongside multiple agencies and internal team members, this was a collaborative effort across all streams of work to help deliver transformative business performance at Vodafone.

Design Consultation

Whilst replatforming the Vodafone eCommerce platform (B2C Retail), I was involved with ensuring all designs / design components received by the global teams were adhering to local user needs.

This meant testing and re-designing what we thought was questionable to local users; A/B Testing page layouts, UI component, tiles, interactive animations and many more elements until we had enough insight to feed back to global teams to help inform more localised design solutions.

What was successful was then added to our newly built design system (WS2.5) which, whilst working alongside a number of developers and SEO consultants, was being rolled out across the live site in agile iterative releases.

I was able to focus on key points across the purchasing journey to help improve customer experience and conversion in a variety of ways:

Product Pages:
Emphasising on improving the users choice in colour select, out of stock scenarios, accessories, reviews and up-selling bundles.

Best Smartphones:
One of the most popular pages on the site; focusing on the compare function along with experimenting with interactive animation styles.

Reviews and Overlays:
A popular function that's being used across the site for multiple scenarios including Top-Ups, Reviews and Cart Confirmations.

Upgrades:
A key page for all telecommunications companies that cater for large traffic of returning users and huge up-sell opportunity.

Project: Chatbot

I was fortuanate to have collaborated with a great team to help develop early concepts of Vodafone's now award-winning chatbot - with a keen focus on refining the UI, journey-flow, as well as experimenting with different naming / branding to see how this would be received by users.

Project: VOXI

Vodafone wanted to compete with other networks and target the younger age range of 16-24 years in the shape of a new, bolder brand. Before large scale budgets could be approved and invested - the concept needed validating.

My involvement spanned from leading research, strategy, requirement scoping, mapping out user flows of different activation journeys, creating prototypes and testing.

User testing provided positive insights; highlighting key findings, areas of improvement, and most importantly validating the concept to proceed further as a separate brand from Vodafone.

The results lead to the 'green light' in development of VOXI, the now award-winning new mobile phone network for students with unlimited data for social networks.
