Problem

Hao Finder approached me to redesign their marketing landing pages to better communicate their value and capture more traffic.

Solution

After the initial discovery and research sessions with the Hao Finder team, we come up with several ideas to improve the Hao Finder product which we integrated into the new site. The result was a mobile-friendly, performant and easy to use site that communicates Hao Finder's value and differentiation from competitors. We also integrated a blog site to capture more leads through search and social media.

UI Design

The design scope included; a home page, B2B services page, about page, blog page, user requests forms, locations page and privacy and terms pages. I was working with the company's existing brand elements, colors and type. My work was to find a way to merge function and beauty into the new Hao Finder online home.

Development

The new Hao Finder website was developed using the Reactjs front-end library. The Hao Finder team is an agile and innovative group. They leverage their agility to conduct experiments and ship innovative products fast. By developing the new site with reusable components, I am setting the stage for faster future development times through code reuse.

Content Strategy

In order to capture more leads through content, I conducted a content strategy workshop with the Hao Finder team. Hao Finder already had a content workflow plan but we were still able to gain more value from the workshop by narrowing down the audience, content types, delivery platforms and design a new publishing platform that takes in to account the content experience.
