Design Brief

Sadbhav Group is an engineering consultancy firm, who deliver multi-million dollars worth of projects each year.

They had a website which was professionally designed about 6 years ago. This aging website did little to portray their image of power and quality to their customers and investors.

Hence, the brief clearly focused on rebranding the look-and-feel of the website with these values.

Key values for the website: Power, precision and quality.

Problem identification

I studied their existing website carefully to discover what problems it had. I documented these points.

This analysis allowed the stakeholders to understand where exactly the improvements were needed.

Finally it was decided to overhaul the complete website rather than just ‘fixing’ it.

Heuristic Evaluation

I carried out heuristic evaluation of the entire website, in order to understand what was exactly wrong with it.

Then, I setup the benchmarks with the site needed to achieve in order to be user friendly and reflect all of the vales stated in the brief.

For heuristic evaluation, I used the standard set of bench-marking guidelines to decide the current ratings of the parameter and then decided on the target rating.

Example of the heuristic evaluation page.

Concept sketches

I sketched several concepts for capturing the values that needed to be reflected in the website.

I mainly chose geometric shapes because they inspire a feeling of precision and quality.

I used simple pencil sketches to present my ideas to the stakeholders and reach to a consensus.

Concept sketches for the website showing the use of geometric shapes to convey the values 'power' and 'quality'. Layout 2 was finally chosen for detailing.

Wireframes

I created quick blocks of wireframes to generate the layout, proportions and the arrangements of the elements on the website.

One of the finalized wireframes for the home page is shown below.

Visual Design

Based on the wireframes I created the visual design of the site.

Final implementations

Here is the screenshot of the final outcome…
