Project Background:

Home Depot is one of Bazaarvoice's most innovative clients, and like my project with Victoria's Secret, their product detail pages are constantly being measured and optimized. A revamp of the two Bazaarvoice solutions on their eCommerce product pages had the makings of a great redesign project: extensive, high-fidelity mockups of nearly every feature crafted by the client's agency, and a highly-engaged and friendly team on the client side. 

There was one problem, though — their mockups had been under review and in feedback rounds for so long, that there was only 4 weeks left to execute the entire project, from kickoff to final QA verification. A typical redesign project of a single Bazaarvoice product can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks.


The project launched on schedule despite the compressed timeframe. I wrote custom code for nearly every element within both the Customer Reviews and Customer Questions & Answers layouts and their accompanying submission forms.

This was the most significant and complex client project I undertook as a designer at Bazaarvoice. It's incredibly rewarding to know that nearly 3 years later, the design is still in use, and has been interacted with by millions of shoppers.
