Expanding Market Reach
There are many people who have bright ideas but no way to see them become real products. Quirky is an invention platform that allows the ideas to be built by a team of product designers and sold on many marketplaces. Quirky wanted to redesign their experience to improve conversions while showcasing the story of how an idea becomes a real product.
Prior to redesign
Quirky identified that there is an opportunity to advance their business model by addressing these key areas:

Redesigned product page
I placed important product content above the fold. The product detail was easily accessed by scrolling, which led customer into the story of the inventor and the idea.
A more intuitive navigation
I placed subcategories in the new navigation to allow users to gain a broad sense of the types of products we sell.
Redesigned listing page
The newly designed listing page was branded with a categorical hero to increase brand awareness. Users can view more results with three columns of products and up sell content was placed at the end of the results .
