My Role: •Screen Redesign •A/B Test Prep for Optimizely


  • Underlying Content Management System and Template cannot change
  • Design changes only happen on the start page
1. Analysis

Design Analysis

  • A visual analysis is performed and highlights various problems with visual elements
  • A technical analysis shows that many points which work well in German markets, negatively influence typical US American visitors

Key Insights:

  • The target consumer enjoys complexity but with the ability to reduce the experience into quick pieces of information
  • In general, target consumer moves quicker through materials
  • The target consumer wants to believe they are the expert and have control over the details
2. Landing Page Visual Design

Based on the cultural analysis, reorganization of text and a new information hierarchy defines a new page shape. The designs still fit within the limits of the Content Management Template, but offer a new route of engagement.

3. A/B Testing

The designs run through A/B testing using Optimizely, for 30 days.

4. The Results

The screen design leads to major improvements within the US market.

  • Overall user engagement up 12%
  • 50% more quality visitors
  • Significant drop in bounce rates

Lessons Learned:

  • Small cultural differences make a huge difference
  • Even sites that cannot change their underlying technologies should improve what is possible
  • A/B testing is worth the effort
