eBay Web Design
I was a hands-on design manager - leading the Design System's Group while also working on some high priority projects.
Visual, interaction and product design for an agile prototyping effort to reimagine the eBay experience. To understand what people really wanted when buying something, we tested our prototype with people who were really looking to buy a TV.
I quickly comped up the directions in fireworks, collaborated with our researcher to come up with a plan, and turned the comps into interactive prototypes. One direction uses icons to display the breath of the application, and the other used graphics to quickly communicate financials. While testing we also asked about navigation models and visual perception.
Design System Redesign
Ebay's look and feel really needed a refresh, so I led an effort to explore possibilities. We decided to design one "minimalist" view, one "editorial" view, and one "fun" view. My team wanted anything but the minimal version so I took it.
Rather than create mood boards we started with a style tile, then worked them through in comps.
