Working with a UX mockup, branding, and design concept that were not made by me
, I initially offered a different approach to the home page design, focusing more on the search box and less on category design. The thought behind this suggestion came from a few considerations:
- Accumulating data which will ultimately make the search functionality more important in the future
- Spending-wise - Not having to relay on design for every new category that will arise in the future
- Saving users from feelings of stigmatization
With this in mind, I offered two extra designs based more on general iconization and centrelizing the search box.
At the end, the client chose to continue with her initial idea, and I made sure to provide her with the best realization of her vision.
