Accounting Expert concept

About the project

Accounting Expert was a design concept created with feedback from the Product Management and Content Management teams within CCH, A Wolters Kluwer business.

The key requirement was to create a product that focused on search and key topics, as opposed to a pre-existing product that relied heavily on a complicated hierarchical navigation structure and an A-Z index.

In particular the feedback from customers was for a product that in essence functioned like a Google search.

The focus was on providing a powerful, and very intelligent search, that would only return a very specific set of results based on a specific search term. The homepage would still however have elements of the existing design so as not to alienate the existing user base.

I used InVision, a new collaborative feedback tool to test designs and get feedback from the stakeholders. They particularly liked how I was able to make on the fly changes based on their feedback. This is an excellent tool for getting direct feedback from customers and I will definitely been incorporating it into my workflow for future projects.

I created two designs based on my initial wireframe, the first which can be seen above. This included key colours from the ongoing Wolters Kluwer re-brand, however the stakeholders preferred a more distinct colour scheme and following on from a review I revised the design to the version seen at the top of this page.
