Even though I was brought on as a UI/UX designer for the Content Lab at Demand Media's content agency, studioD, I was first tasked with helping the marketing team create a redesigned homepage for studioD.com (now defunct, but there's a partially cached version of it here
. Be sure to close the archive.org header to get to the navigation!).
studioD had an in-house brand designer, but the team lacked UX expertise, so I took initiative on gathering the requirements for this project. This entailed scheduling meetings with the management team and marketing team to figure out what content we would feature on the website, as well as the direction of the brand voice and tone of copy.
User research, user journey, sitemap, wireframes, and some light project management.
Team members involved:
Brand designer for the visual design
Product manager for definition of brand and voice (who also coded the entire site, since our engineering team was swamped!).
