Project Scope:

Design Sojourn partnered with Yanko Design to work on the design strategy and user experience design for their new international crowd-funding website CKIE.

Design Sojourn was involved in shaping the business strategy at CKIE, by using a user-centered approach in problem resolution. Design Sojourn was also involved in developing a vetting system to help the team ensure the projects submitted for funding were of a certain quality, and supported in the development of the user experience design of the website particularly in the areas of trust, usability, and information organization.

Initial concepts by the web team at Yanko Design. Design Sojourn suggested improvements based on the design principles of trust, usability and information organization.

Here is what Takashi Yamada founder of Yanko Design had to say about Design Sojourn via a Linked in recommendation:

“You will be hard fought to find someone who is more creative, compassionate, forward thinking, deft in writing, and well versed in industrial design. He has applied these strengths in creating a design voice and strategic design advice for my web assets, Yanko Design and CKIE. Finally, his passion for entrepreneurship and self-manufacturing, makes him the ultimate design consultant.”
