While working on assignment for Mentor Mate, Minneapolis, I was commissioned to lead the experience and visual design for this phone application for France 44, a prestigious high-end wine and cheese store from the Twin Cities.
France 44’s core strength relies on the quality of their customer service. They pride themselves in establishing personal, on-going relationships with their clients so their input as subject matter experts was essential to understanding what the experience should be.
The insights obtained in those sessions were further refined into user flows and wireframes which were then complimented by a visual design articulated in effective CSS-friendly design tiles shared with the offshore development team and incorporated into the final production.
