Our UX Design Approach

Our approach as a digital UX agency tailored specifically for the fashion and lifestyle industry, encompassing five main phases:

  • Research and User Insights: By leveraging behavioural analytic tools and examining site activity on platforms like Google Analytics and Shopify, we delve deeply into your brand, audience, and market. This approach enables us to gather actionable insights that are essential for understanding and strategizing effectively.
  • Strategy and Concept Development: Utilising the insights, we develop a tailored UX strategy, defining user personas and journey maps to guide the design process.
  • Design and Prototyping: We create visual and interactive designs that resonate with the fashion and lifestyle audience, developing low and hi-fidelity prototypes for review and iteration.
  • Implementation and Analysis: Post-launch, we collaborate with your team for implementation and continuously analyse user data to optimise the design and enhance user engagement.
  • Ongoing Maintenance Retainers: We offer e-commerce and website maintenance retainers to ensure your site stays updated as real customers interact with it.

Throughout this process, we ensure transparency and alignment with your brand goals, delivering a user experience that not only looks great but also performs effectively.

Why Fashion and Lifestyle Brands Need Specialized UX
