We elevated the user experience by creating a seamless and consistent journey while preserving the essence of each brand.
Lack of consistency.
We conducted an in-depth analysis of the inconsistency within each brand's visual identity. Through extensive user research and data analysis, it became evident that the lack of visual cohesion was causing confusion and dissonance among users. The varying styles, colours, and iconography across different brands hindered brand recognition and created a fragmented user experience.
The research findings provided valuable insights that guided the rebranding efforts and ensured that the visual elements of each brand were in alignment with their unique characteristics, while maintaining a consistent and coherent user experience across all touchpoints.
Two designs, one choice.
After categorization process, we managed to group the 12 brands into two distinct categories. We then developed multiple icon designs for each category, aiming to enhance visibility, accessibility, and understanding of the meaning behind each icon. We conducted the initial user testing to gather feedback and determine which version received a more positive response, ensuring that the icons clearly conveyed their message and were easily understood by users.
By incorporating user feedback and preferences, we were able to identify the designs that resonated most with users and aligned with their expectations. These chosen designs served as the starting point for the development of the remaining icons, ensuring a cohesive and consistent visual language across the project.
The chosen one, for now...
Based on the initial designs, we further developed additional icons to conduct a comparative test and determine which one would be the most suitable choice for the remaining set. After analysing the tests, one particular design stood out as the clear winner. It exhibited excellent visibility, especially on small screens, thanks to its clean and minimalist aesthetic. The removal of extra elements ensured that the focus remained solely on the icon itself, allowing users to easily comprehend its meaning.
Additionally, we discovered that the inclusion of a hand in the design added unnecessary complexity and distracted from the core icon, which is crucial for effective communication. As a result, we selected this design to serve as the foundation for the remaining icons in the set.
Wait, we just realised that...
Through our research, we confirmed the need to simplify the icons and reduce visual complexity. By implementing a cleaner design approach, the results showed a higher level of acceptance and understanding among users. The streamlined and less visually busy icons allowed for better recognition and enhanced user experience, ultimately contributing to the overall success of the project.
During the testing phase, we conducted a thorough assessment of the redesigned icons to evaluate their comprehension and consistency in representing their intended meanings. The results were positive, confirming that the icons effectively conveyed their intended messages while maintaining a cohesive visual identity.
When implemented across multiple brands, the new icons keep the visual consistency without compromising the individual brand identities.
