Improve brand perception.
Preliminary IA of proposed Pattern Library, and the changes following a Card-Sorting workshop.
Once the IA of the Pattern Library was defined, it was important to establish which areas needed attention as a priority:
Layout & Grid Structure
Buttons & core UI elements
...all under the umbrella of accessibility.
Part of the new UI kit, demonstrating interaction of use of 'Tints & Shades' of colour within the new themes.
Introducing new themes, colour associations and restricting the use of colour-overload were one of the key parts of the project.
Screen examples of the Schroders Pattern Library
A strong foundation for the Schroders Design team to use and evolve.
The new rebrand was then rolled out and tested across various platforms and different products.
