AEOutfitters

World-Wide Retailer

Contracted as UX / UI design consultant to assist AEO with multiple objectives during the summer in preparation for the following holiday season — which is retails most important time of year.

Partnered with a small team of 2 other UX / UI design professionals, we assisted the team both off and on site with the redesign of important sections of the company webpage, introduced and implemented a design pattern library and developed new communication paths in support of an organization wide effort to provide customers with an omni-channel experience.

The Teams Approach

AEO is a large organization with an established process and one of the challenges with the project was the actual process – which was a *classic waterfall* method. That said, our team came up with new ways to keep things agile within our own process.

User-Research

As a team, we hit the streets and conducted user research in stores around Pittsburgh, PA and San Francisco, CA. We isolated 20 customers in total into 3 different groups who shared similar influences and attitudes about shopping, clothing and technology.

Team Ideation Sessions

Sketching ideas with a small team of UX designers, UI designers, UX researchers and product management spent a day early on generating ideas for all the goals we needed to achieve. It was helpful to have everyone in the same room all day in case a question came up or we needed access to a particular report or metric.

Wireframes

Selecting the best ideas with the team, we moved into creating detailed wireframes and in some cases creating interactions within Axure.
