CafePress information architecture and user experience

Posted: Thursday, May 9, 2013 | Posted by Tania Schlatter | Labels: , ,

CafePress is an established custom printing e-tailer. We worked with the product marketing team to improve how people find products on their site. We conducted a heuristic review to identify IA, visual design, and usability issues, and showed options for changes that addressed UX in schematic layouts (visual wireframes).

Follow-on work included exploring identity options and visual site design.
