Frameworks for Products

Beyond client-centric design and consulting, I actively contribute to crafting solutions for internal products. Collaborating seamlessly with developers, project managers, and stakeholders, I steer the design direction to deliver high-quality results that meet product goals and user needs.

CV ecommerce UI Framework

Commerce Vision | 2012-2023

For over a decade, I spearheaded the development of the CV ecommerce front-end design framework within Commerce Vision. Serving as a pivotal stakeholder, my primary emphasis lay in crafting a framework rooted in responsive and modular design principles, ensuring adaptability and scalability at its core.

At the heart of this framework was the creation of a robust SCSS foundation tailored to encapsulate the intricate nuances of ecommerce functionalities. Collaborating seamlessly with internal development and management teams over this extensive period, my role expanded beyond initial creation to continual improvement and refinement of the product design.

A crucial component of this undertaking involved the meticulous integration of exhaustive style guides and user manuals directly into the design system. These guides served as indispensable resources, streamlining the process of client adoption and empowering them to harness the full potential of the framework.

These comprehensive guides weren't just surface-level, they delved deep into modular elements, encompassing detailed instructions for components like buttons, forms, alerts, and various other modular elements. Tailored for both internal development teams and clients, these guides offered a clear roadmap for effortlessly crafting and implementing user interfaces.

This in-depth documentation ensured a standardised approach to design implementation, fostering consistency and coherence across diverse projects. It empowered stakeholders, enabling them to swiftly and effectively create user interfaces aligned seamlessly with the frameworks principles and industry best practices.

The intricately developed framework emerged as the fundamental infrastructure supporting a broad client base, ranging from modest small businesses to expansive corporations. Its hallmark adaptability and versatility is a key selling point, becoming a linchpin for numerous triumphant ecommerce endeavors across varied industries and business magnitudes.

At the heart of its success lay the frameworks adaptability, empowering customers to leverage its core structures to fashion bespoke designs. By offering a flexible framework, clients could harness its foundational elements to fashion tailor-made designs aligned with their unique brand identities and specific business requirements. This adaptability not only streamlined the design process but also ensured that each client could craft a distinct and personalised digital presence using the frameworks foundational components
