MP-Shop Decoration Management System  1.0

2016, e-Commerce, UX

MP was an online shop decoration management system for online retailers, it involved web browser and phone app shop decorations.

Project tasks: 

  1. Define information structure and main functions
  2. Page layouts and methods to managing them
  3. Define sizes of page widgets and interactions while positioning them
  4. Design the ways to add and manage contents for each widget

Before any tangible design work, I and the Product Manager researched about the target users and the form factors etc.

We found out that

  • Most users decorate their shops on high-resolution computer screens, which excluded the ones who were still on web browsers under IE 9. It’d be more flexible for me to design mini-interactions.
  • Mouse input is primary, the keyboard is supportive. Therefore we did not consider much on switches between mouse and keyboard inputs.
  • The target users were familiar with Internet or hired computer operators, so the ones who have little computer knowledge were not in our scenarios.

This project went about a few months long, it was helpful that the communications between PM and I and developers were smooth.

The following shows the information architecture about the system.
