My Role: UI Designer
St. James Place Wealth Management worldwide partners use a iPad tool called Trust to guide clients in the selection of SJP Trust funds. Despite having a large worldwide user base, the Trust tool was restricted to an iPad app. It also had many usability and UI issues that confuses its user.
I joined the team as a UI designer to to design a responsive user centric interface for desktop and mobile devices. I also worked with the UX designer to help address the UX issues of the app.
My first task was to inform and select a responsive grid as a foundation for the the Trust tool to be built on, so to enable the tool to look its best on a wide range of viewports and devices.
Individual screens was then wireframed for the UI to sit on. I then created a UI pattern to form a common design language for the tool. The pattern had to look fresh while remaining loyal to the SJP brand guidelines. This pattern then served as a basis for each screen design and as a resource to pass on for development.
