Purpose of the projects
Introduction “A year at Sanoma Digital”
Mid 2013 I joined Sanoma Digital as freelance User Experience Designer and Visual Designer. They just started the pilot Kieskeurig International, a project to cut through the red tape and applying development methods like, agile/scrum. Fine-tuning responsive webdesign approaches.
From the start of the Kieskeurig international pilot we tried mobile first, but the demands from the product managers were too rigid, we ‘invented’ the Desktop Skim-Down approach. Using less functionality or other interaction principles on tablet or mobile devices, which still had the same feel.
I worked on kieskeurig international en kieskeurg.nl for 5 months. During my stay I also did other projects like Kieskeurig Blog, Kieskeurig Checkout and Energieprijzen.nl for approximately another 6 months.
Management of Kieskeurig.nl was really charmed by the look & feel of the upgraded brand identity and development speed of the international pilot. Januari 2014 we started the kieskeurig.nl responsive transformation. The new brand identity of international was implemented and the requirements of kieskeurig.nl were made responsive.
My Role “Requirements, High Fidelity wireframes & pixel perfect design”
Revamping the old kieskeurig -which was not responsive at all- developing a new brand identity and working through the responsive design approach was a great assignment. Getting the requirements, mapping them into the information architecture per device, and tuning them where needed. Setting up the layouts for the different devices (high fidelity wireframe) and upgrading them into design was gratifying assignment.
