|Client Hire an Esquire||Provided UX + UI|
|Project Designing the UX for HaE's new platform||Year 2016|
Hire an Esquire, a technology driven and staffing company, helps law practices transform into efficient and flexible business models for the 21st century. They had launched a new app that acted as a hiring platform for both firms and attorneys to acquire new talent and find new jobs, but they needed help with the user experience—the current version had too many steps and too many redundant actions.
The first thing we did was look at the taxonomy and information architecture. There was so much room for improvement in terms of terminology and messaging that we felt tackling that first would dictate the specific approach we would take with the user experience and user interface.
For the overall UI, we kept their colors but ended up refining the layout and depth to create a focal point and guide users towards the most important features. For UX, we suggested making the dashboard a center for quick actions so that users wouldn’t need to go through different pages of the app. We also broke up the job applications flow into different sections and added tooltips to guide the user through the posting process.
