Strong brand message
For a startup, they have a lot of amazing clients & have a good variety
Fun, really try to humanize their brand & connect with their users on their level
Very distracting text and cursor, which take away from their work
The color scheme is off, not very accessible
Have a section full of trusted clients helps them gain new clients' trust.
Explains what and why they do very well, they make sure that the information is easily digestible.
Hectic website, tons of information.
Not accessible at all, very hard to read
Inconsistent design across website, different font weights, and color schemes.
Love the use of the scroll down the line, helping guide the user down through their story.
Love the autoplay focus on the featured section, well organized.
Very cluttered, wow, way too confusing
When on the menu, the cursor is hard to find, creating some friction to see tab.
When looking at competitors, we focused on startups looking to find their credibility because we wanted to learn which areas most agencies were focusing on. We noticed that showing the process and how the client will fit within that equation allows them to feel part of the team. Another data point we found was showing the previous clients that the agency has worked alongside. They were allowing clients to see what they have done. (This client had previous clients tell them that they can't put their (clients name) on the website. With that challenge in mind; How might we gain that trust with new clients?

1. Prototyping/ Web Development
Prototyping & Web Development
When prototyping, I gather the agency together, and we jotted down our goals on the board, so we could refer to them when making our designs. We each did the crazy eights, which we then presented our ideas. Why did we do it this way? How will this meet the goals and needs of Voth? Finally, after we presented and chose the specific features, I started to make some prototypes on Webflow. (I skipped Figma because I like to make prototypes on webflow to test/publish them on the go.
We started off looking at many templates because we could learn from how templates structured the information.
Here were the classic webflow templates, and I research other video production templates, which aided with prioritizing.
We wanted to make a statement as soon as the user entered Voth's website because Voth wants to be part of the media's luxury side. We chose to start with a question to enable the users to start thinking about their stories. How might the new client see themselves working alongside Voth?
At first, we decided to have the about page as its separate page because we saw the people enjoyed seeing the team and their mission. The problem we found was, the team was only two, so they wanted to make it more of a team mission versus two individuals.
Usability Tests Findings
