Project overview

Start with alignment.
Target audience

The target audience for these websites is people who are interested in customizing and renovating flat bets and utility vans.

Business objectives

The goal is to enhance the functionality of these websites and improve the user experience. They also need the website page tracking to work properly.

Problem Statement

Low Fives Only is having issues with their client's websites being on Wix. They need a more robust website with additional information about their products. They have noticed that their current website is not meeting the expectations of their visitors and they want to include more make and model details as well as other features to improve user experience.

Opportunities

Basin Upfitting

With an estimated 14 pages, Basin Upfitting needs some UX improvements to help users find what they are looking for.

Simplified Navigation

How might we simplify the navigation to make it more clear and easy to navigate?

Let users search

A search component on the site might help some users find what they are looking for faster and give insights into what they aren't finding.

Basin Performance

Basin has a lower performance score when measured with Google. This should be improved to avoid unintended loss of traffic.

Kingbee Website

Kingbee also needs to be migrated from Wix to a better platform.

Kingbee Performance

With slightly better performance, we should look to improve the performance with a target of 90/100.

Kingbee Pages & Page types

With an estimated 12 pages, the Kingbee website has a basic structure with Articles, Media, and FAQ.

Inspiration for discussion

We didn't talk about this on the call, but we are inspired by the simple navigation of Polestar as well as the interactive scroll.

Custom content for the site

Throwing this in as an option… we have a cyclorama wall and professional Chimera soft box that could help us create unique visuals.

Keywords

How might we incorporate more keywords into the website and navigation to help with competitor benchmarking.

Relevant work samples

CRV

Distinguishing a venture capital firm from their competitors.

Process & Deliverables

This creative process is designed to keep
Low Fives Only
and Underbelly aligned throughout the project and focus on resolving important decisions at the least expensive point in the project.
This will take place in four phases where any phase may overlap with each other.
01
Discovery
02
Design
03
Development
04
Delivery

Timeline

Phase one: 
Discovery

Uncovering Potential

During this phase, we seek to understand the broader context, the user, the technological landscape, and the fundamental challenges. We focus on these deliverables:

  • Requirements refinement & research (ie. analytics, surveys, or benchmarks)
  • Sitemap and content mapping
  • Basic audience segmentation and brand messaging strategy
  • URL naming & structure

Roughly 1-2 days
In this phase, we often stumble upon fresh avenues and unforeseen potentials. Given the inherently explorative nature of this phase, the timeline and budget may naturally evolve. Should any shift occur, our commitment is to provide clients with immediate implications of such changes.

Phase two: 
Design

Crafting with precision

As we delve deeper into the design, we become meticulous with every detail. Every interaction is refined to ensure a seamless and beautiful user experience.

  • UI Layouts
  • Interaction flows
  • Detailed design specifications
  • Digital prototypes
  • User testing feedback
  • Iterative design adjustments.
Roughly 1 month
Decisions made in the discovery phase may affect both time and cost estimates. If needed, new estimates will be created at that time.
Phase three: 
Development

The Intersection of Art and Engineering

As designers and engineers collaborate closely, the product begins to take shape in its final form. It's a dance between aesthetics and functionality, ensuring that our vision is realized while meeting all technical requirements.

  • Final designs
  • Component libraries
  • Iterative adjustments based on feedback
  • Quality assurance testing
Roughly 1 month
We are committed to notifying clients as soon as possible if any unforeseen obstacles arise during implementation that affect the timeline.
Phase four: 
Delivery

Releasing to the World

The website, now fully realized and in your care, we observe, listen, and learn from users, taking their feedback as the seed for our next cycle of design and innovation.

  • Launch monitoring
  • Post-launch evaluations
  • Additional feature scoping
  • Monthly website monitoring & maintenance (available upon request)
1 week
We are committed to notifying clients as soon as possible if any unforeseen obstacles arise during implementation that affect the timeline.
