WEBSITE PORTAL

Lacoste Evolução
Francesa









2011 — Digital producer, Art director, UI Designer
‘Evolução Francesa’ was the brand behind the content strategy of Lacoste in Brazil. Successfully turned over their blog into a fashion curatorship portal, recreating all content showcase and management. Working closely with Live and Norte agencies, we designed and coded from content management system to interface, an entirely new end-to-end product.








Some backgrounds, typography and home arrangements tested for the first approval rounds.


The Challenge    
    The goal was to turn their successful in-house blog into an online portal, with constant updates from countless featured collaborators (stylists, designers, bloggers, photographers and trendsetters). As the project got bigger, it required rethink all content management and permission levels.


The Previous blog, designed by Hardcuore.



    The UI Solution
    Live agency provided a complete prototype with features based on their UX research and a set of new functionalities. We brought some ideas for the homepage like menu instead of tabs, modular content stacks, fluid random arrangements for home and inner pages, and social media integration. In the backstage a WP engine was elected to run the new platform with the capacity and flexibility the project required.

    The Concept
    Norte Agency indicated the designer Nelson Balaban to create the UI concepts and backgrounds. Lacoste gave us freedom, so we drove a serious pack of options until we decide along with the agency for a definitive style. A very simplified and sharp version was elected to go live. The inner pages design inherited the modular grid style structure to accommodate the new loads of content.

    The Outcome
    A customized CMS and an entirely new front-end interface, now ready for massive updates and completely manageable in terms of content and form. The project was live for almost 3 years and was the main channel between Brazilian creatives and the Lacoste brand.

E-ZINE

Nike 6.0









2010 — Digital Producer, Art Director, UI Design
A printed pocket zine goes into a device experience. Designed for early tablets, this project was created, coded and launched within 18 days.









    The Challenge
 
    We had roughly 2 weeks to transform an 80 pages pocket zine into a tablet-friendly digital version. Tons of professional extreme sports photos and videos, and an extensive written material to curate.
   
    The Content Management   
    The project was addressed to an event in Rio de Janeiro, so the content wouldn't be updated. To fit better in a digital version, we curate and shrink the written content to 30%, and concentrate on imagery and the best photos. Divided into sections, the content could be accessed in a one finger menu. Developed in HMTL 5, we could explore all multimedia features and accessibility tablets had at that time.

    The UI Solution
    Along with the content refreshing, we start to produce mockups to test the usability, the scrolling movements and the menu itself. Norte Agency brought illustrations to compose the screens. Following brand guidelines - using fluorescent colour palette, rough material concepts and strong typography - was created a customized identity for the zine.

    The Outcome
     Highlighting community projects and local heroes - and now in digital format - Nike could reach a whole new consumer generation in Rio de Janeiro.
