How might we enable Zalon to become more stylist centric. 

In this project we wanted to connect, see what the stylist see, feel what they feel, enjoy what they enjoy to conquer their hearts. Because it's about them. Them sitting alone behind their computers, lonely, losing their passion. Losing their motivation.

Helping stylist connect

Through community platforms and stylist gatherings

Stylists work alone; their only connection is with customers or Stylist Care. Meeting peers happens only once in a while at Academy Days or Parties.

Having stylists meet digitally will allow them to share experiences, create bonds among them and sparkle a positive chain reaction within Zalon.

 

Keep the stylists inspired

Through starter kits, blog content, magic moments of celebration

Stylists love to deep dive into the fashion world. Let’s get them involved in representing fashion.
Let’s combine the fun part with the dull stuff. The survey showed that more than 97% are interested in inspiring content that can be found in the stylist tool.

Also, when we ask for topics they are interested in, they always mention trends.

Celebrate excellence

Through top stylist pages, newsletter redesigns, brand bible

Because of heavy text load with less visual direction we heard that stylists miss important information.

E.g. Marcus told us he only found out at a brand training that he can now pack 2 pairs of shoes in a box. Matthias also looked at him confused and didn’t know that either. Even though they both claim to read the weekly update they both missed to this important information.

Impact
All concepts being prototyped and implemented.

 

Learning 1

Nothing is better then self immersion 

Learning 2

Tools and mind shifts are scalable

 

“It brought our own team closer together since it gave them a stronger purpose and made people work together that didn’t work together before.” -Zalon
“This project gave us more insight into what stylists are facing on a daily basis. What they like and dislike about working for Zalon, this helped us with a fresh perspective to define what we need to improve.”-Zalon
“The fun part of my work is on Fridays - Because on Fridays I can work 100% on the future outcomes of our new project.” -Zalon
 

How might we create a desire for our users to discover and explore brands
Fleek had launched their first version of the app and their users were not following brands as they hoped, but why was this happening? We took a closer look by making in depth interviews with Fleeks future users. What sparks their heart with brands and is it really about the logo?

Users reactions

“Its great when you can randomly look through inspiration.”-Emma

“No logos of the brands is more interesting, usually you have a prejudice. This would give me a open mind.”-John

Impact

through content you fall in love with brands.

What it is
Zaplox operates globally, offering the hospitality industry a turnkey platform, including an app for managing the guest experience, based on a secure and efficient mobile key system. 

The challenge 
How might we help Zaplox to organise their future roadmap to see their full potential. With a passionate team as the start up Zaplox. There were many different visions from the stakeholders and this was a moment for them to reflect on where they are, where they want to head and who they want to become. 

 

The workshops

During two workshops we defined more the in depth idea of Zaplox. They were starting to implement far too many features which made the app have too many touch points. 

 

The future

Finally creating a journey with the touch points: 7 days before, 3 days before, Check in, unlocking, during stay, check out, book again

 

The result

After leaving them with a potential design and wire frame base the team took the material with them to continue working towards a final project.

How can snowboarders enhance each other's experience, without compromising their enjoyment of their own ride and of the mountains? Burton - Original and innovative snowboarding hub. Nokia - Showcase Windows Phone, Exclusive "must have" hub. Snowboarders live to better them selves and we improve faster with help from others. That is a problem for the selfish community. Burton has the opportunity to help every snowboarder improve.

MTV's library of shows is available on demand for the first time, with new episodes premiering exclusively on mobile before their terrestrial release date. 

 

 

Non-fiction books made easy.

There's so many books out there and so little time to read them. With Blinkist you can read them fast and on the go. One book will take you 15 minutes instead of 10 hours. In this project I created the complete new look for Blinkist 2.0, style guide including colours, logo, iconography. The user experience I created together with Kimmy Bolke. Focus was on customer discovery by interviewing, giving surveys and usability tests with rapid prototyping. It is crucial to validate assumptions when pursuing a business, or a just a design for that matter.

 

 

Read more. Anytime, Anywhere.

Responsive design is essential. The objective of the design elements and the user interface has been to create an intuitive and inviting platform for frequent use by customers.

The website. 

Besides the main platforms for iPad and iPhone devices, I created the Blinkist landing page which has been build with responsive design and integrated functions to support user orientation. 

Created a new design for H&M app and online presence.

Second screen provide an enhanced viewing experience for content on another device. The objective is to provide interactive features during media entertainment served within a special app. Hired by Moccu media agency, I created two fully pilot-ready examples for demonstrating the potential with a second screen application integrated in media content from ProSieben, a European TV channel. The two online examples I have been engaged with comprise an application for a top-model and live football show in TV, frequently watched by more than 3m unique visitors.

 
 

Top-model

The top model show application required expertise in concepting, user experience as well as design. The app is based on different widgets that update live during the actual broadcasting in TV. Concept examples include dedicated eCommerce activities, tutorials as well live-decisions about the outcome of the show.

 
 

Live football

The live football application works in the same way as described for the top model show sample. The difference is that you can interact with direct peers, watch 3D recaps from the match and customize game statistics in accordance to your interest.

 

Created to re-engage with the digital youth who have shunned TV in favour of the phone.
