The Food Doctor

The Brief

The Food Doctor had a full rebrand and needed to relaunch across all digital platforms. I worked closely with the team from the early concept and wire-framing sessions to the final website launch. It was my responsibility to provide a clear solution in the form of a refreshing UI/UX that complemented the brand. In under 4 months we were able to create a brand new website and go live. I had a continual relationship with the brand manager to ensure we remained faithful to the brand whilst being as creative as possible and always exploring new ideas.

UX Development

The first stage of the project involved sitting down with key stakeholders to decide the rough layout and content needed for the main site. I managed the session and split the group into teams and challenged them to create a rough layout. After a set time we all came back together to discuss the decisions made and focus on what was key for the target audience.

From early wireframes the website was built on continual client feedback and agile development allowed us to continually make improvements to the website in terms of colour and layout. One example of this was improving the inner product details page to contain detailed product information in a tabbed format allowing the user to easily switch. 

Small user tests were conducted throughout the stages of the project and all feedback was documented and the new changes were added to the website.

A visual message

It was important to keep a clear and concise message with the branding and provide an interesting solution to the brief. I worked with another branding studio who provided all the illustrative elements. It was my job to make sure these translated onto the digital platform and to think of ways to explore these assets. One of these was using the kaleidoscope above as a way to generate ingredients.

Building an online presence

Not long after the launch of the full site I created the design for the external blog site along with new email templates. The blog had to feel different to the mine site not just in terms of content but also in terms of overall design. Considering The Food Doctor promotes healthy living, I felt the design needed to reflect that and be simple and easy to interact with.
