I helped Karmarama design and develop the user experience for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank's 'Let's Connect' campaign microsite.
Clydesdale and Yorkshire bank conducted an extensive survey to gauge customers’ feedback about their banking experience. They received a large volume of helpful insights. The results of the survey were analysed and the bank developed a framework in which to action the most popular and pragmatic suggestions.
Karmarama worked with the bank to develop an integrated campaign, centred around communicating the improvements to the customer experience.
The objective of the website was to bring this story to life, by presenting sample questions from the survey, along with real customer feedback and examples of actions taken by the bank.
I worked alongside the account, design and development teams at Karmarama to develop a responsive website experience that effectively showcased the campaign.
We adopted an iterative process that involved the development of an Axure prototype. Throughout the project we had regular calls with the client (based in Scotland and Yorkshire) and internal reviews for key deliverables to ensure the project met the tight deadlines.
Capturing key requirements of the user experience during the discovery stage of the project helped us to define the scope of the webite early on in the process.
Mapping key content types and groups enabled us to develop a clear content structure and hierarchy that would feed into both the sitemap and wireframes as well as define some of the project's technical requirements.
Developing key user journeys through the experience helped us understand how to best design each screen and the wider flow through the website.
The sitemap enabled to graphically capture and agree upon the structure of the website.

I produced a basic HTML style guide to accompany the Axure prototype. This was used to communicate basic colours and typographic styles as well as interaction states for key components such as buttons.
"Ben is a fantastic collaborator and creative thinker. He not only has the experience knowledge and skill set to deliver concise deliverables but he's a pleasure to work with and brings a wealth of technical expertise to the table. This in turn makes it super efficient to arrive at thoughtful solutions. I enjoyed working with ben very much and will always welcome him to my team."
