As a UX designer, I had the opportunity to design and develop a large-scale website with thousands of content pages, categories, and in 7 different languages, with millions of visitors per month.
To ensure the success of the project, I used design thinking to create the information architecture and design the templates for the different sections.
Design thinking allowed me to approach the project from a user-centered perspective. I began by conducting research to understand the needs of the users and their behaviors. This helped me create a user-centric information architecture that organized the content in a way that made sense to the users.
Once I had the information architecture in place, I began designing the templates for the different sections. This was a complex task, as the website had a vast amount of content and needed to be available in multiple languages. To ensure consistency across the site, I used a design system that included reusable components and guidelines for typography, colors, and spacing.
One of the key features of the website was the newsletter functionality. I designed and developed an automatic digested newsletter that pulled content from the site and sent it to subscribers on a regular basis. This feature was highly successful and helped increase engagement with the website.
Throughout the project, I worked closely with the development team to ensure that the design was implemented correctly and that the website was optimized for performance. I also conducted user testing to gather feedback and make adjustments to the design as needed.
As a result of my contributions, the website was a success. It received millions of visitors per month and was available in multiple languages. The design was user-friendly and the newsletter functionality helped increase engagement with the site.
Overall, my experience designing and developing this large-scale website was challenging, but rewarding. It allowed me to apply my skills in information architecture, template design, and newsletter functionality, and to work collaboratively with a development team to create a successful product.
