During the first week, I worked on the wireframe variations for the key user journey, which begins with selecting a product category and adding item(s) to the cart and ends at placing the order (no payments, all financial transactions are handled in person).
I created multiple variations to show how product categories and individual items could be displayed in the interface. This included accordions, card lists and grids, tabs, modal and other UX solutions.
After three rounds of iterations, we settled on the final flow that consists of only two pages and resolves most actions by expanding and contracting cards to show additional information.
In the second week of the project, I worked on the two conceptual directions for the interface design. The first one is a classical dark theme associaled with luxury and elegance and aimed at fine dining establishments. The second theme has a modern look using bright colours and rounded shapes and typography to appeal to more casual venues.
The client selected the first style for their minimum viable product, which I applied to all screens in the key user journey. I created an alternative light version of this theme to give restaurants more choice in how their menu is presented.
