My role

Senior Product Designer

As the Senior Product Designer, I jumped on to Mortgage Hub when it was well on its way to the first release to help nurture and grow the design team, as well as refine the design system, key templates and user journey.

I had to rapidly understand user needs and business requirements through stakeholder interviews while rigorously critiquing the current designs through regular design team reviews, audits and usability studies.

Gaining confidence

Much of the primary and secondary research had been conducted long before my arrival, however, a thorough round of usability studies needed to be actioned to gain confidence in what had already been built.

We discovered that the case navigation was one of the most prevalent pain points and decided to take the necessary steps to develop solutions without scope creep. We actually removed a lot of unnecessary development effort and made the user experience better at the same time.
