Design process

User research: summary
For the distressed property information website project, I conducted user research to understand the specific needs of our audience. Through interviews and the creation of an affinity map, it became evident that users were seeking an intuitive, trustworthy online platform for accessing distressed property listings. These insights were pivotal in shaping the development of a website that not only made finding distressed properties straightforward but also reinforced user confidence, crucial for transactions involving significant financial decisions.
Design strategy: addressing pain points

In the overhaul of the distressed property information website, the main issue was its antiquated design that was affecting user interaction negatively. My objective was to update the website with a contemporary, visually appealing, and easy-to-navigate interface that would appeal to users and foster trust in the platform. Furthermore, I employed user journey mapping to identify key points of interaction within the site. This method helped me discover opportunities for the website to offer vital information and improve the overall experience, making the process of finding and assessing distressed properties efficient and user-friendly.

Starting the design
I incorporated feedback and insights from preliminary user testing, a step that was essential in enhancing the website’s interface to boost user engagement. Special attention was given to achieving intuitive navigation and prominently showcasing the main services provided. This strategy was designed to streamline the user’s navigation through the site, facilitating easier access to and interaction with the essential information and services they seek, ultimately improving the overall user experience.

Laying out the content

In redesigning the content layout for the distressed property information website, I utilized wireframing to systematically structure the content into well-defined sections.

This approach was primarily aimed at addressing two main objectives: firstly, to align with business goals, which include encouraging users to engage with fundamental features such as browsing distressed property listings, utilizing valuation tools, and accessing investment guidance; and secondly, to meet user expectations by providing comprehensive and clear information on property details, condition, and investment potential, as well as advice on navigating the purchase process, thus improving their overall experience on the site.

UI Design

For the redesign of the Source for Distressed Property Information website, I chose the Cairo typeface for all textual content, aligning with its status as the brand’s typography. This decision supports the site’s mission to provide in-depth and authoritative information on distressed properties. Cairo, characterized by its modern and clear-cut style, ensures that both headers and body text are readable and visually appealing, allowing key sections and services to be prominently displayed. The exclusive use of Cairo, as the brand’s chosen typography, creates a unified and elegant design aesthetic, reinforcing the website’s identity as a trusted and professional destination in the distressed property market.
