About Me

I believe that good design has the power to make us happy and improve the quality of our lives.

I recently graduated from Brainstation's UX Design course and it deepened my understanding of the UX design process and design thinking.

As a UI/UX designer, my primary focus is helping businesses translate their goals into a functioning experience that meets their customer's needs. I enjoy figuring out how people use products, and how the products can be made easier and enjoyable to use.

I am 100% remote. I work from home in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.

Apart from designing I enjoy writing songs and playing guitar. Reading also relaxes me, my favourite book is Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.

Lenoma Legal is a South African-based startup, born without any outside funding or capital injection, but with the ambition to become a pan-African startup in its own respect. With this goal, I focused on getting back to basics and connecting the customer's needs with the business' goals, applying all my user-centered design experience.

Defining the problem

Lenoma Legal offers affordable legal services to small businesses. Despite the company’s brand presence and social media clout, it was clear that it’s online presence didn't reflect it's true capabilities.

Their old website was an Ecwid online store "plug-and-play" template with non-strategic design and an unpleasant user experience. It was hard to navigate, visually imbalanced, cluttered and not aesthetic.

Design Approach

It was important to do an audit of the of the old website's user interface to see whether the design was fulfilling the business' goals and meeting the user's needs. I checked for aesthetic and minimalist design, help and documentation, and flexibility and efficiency of use.

🧭 no navigation links

navigational menus should always be visible otherwise user hasno idea where to go

💫 distraction

the bright logo, the whatsapp button and the blue chat button - more options lead to harder decisions

🤐 too wordy

too much information for the user to digest

🔗 non - conversion links

give user options to leave without getting any service


👁️ too many visual signals

too much detail can be overwhelming and distracting; office buildings outside, ceiling lights, window frames

All the services had to be visible and accessible from the home page so clients can buy, customize and review documents and also have video consultations with a lawyer.The design took shape through small changes to the layout - the final iteration included brief and concise service descriptions, clear and visible 'call to action' buttons and some social proof so:

1) the business could convert visitors to customers and
2) visitors could access all of the services or learn more about what services are offered

Legal jargon can be intimidating so I avoided it where I could, and simplified the language in the copy and microcopy to avoid usability issues and provide users with decision-making clarity.
