Introducing Our Redesigned Side Navigation

Focused on Your Design Efficiency
Programa
Updated: 11 April 2024

What’s New?

Navigating our platform just got a whole lot smarter, and it’s all in the interest of amplifying your design potential.

Why Change?

While our platform has always been brimming with transformative features, our side navigation often led users, especially those new to the platform, astray. We’ve witnessed the brilliance of our user community and believe that you should be immediately met with the tools that showcase your skills best.

Key Enhancements

  1. Showcase of Strengths: Now, when you dive into the platform, our most potent tools and features are front and centre. Your initial interactions will immediately reflect the platform’s premier capabilities, ensuring you get the most out of every design session.
  2. Simplified Discovery: We’ve regrouped our tools based on functionality and use-case. Say goodbye to sifting through options and hello to intuitive navigation. Get to what you need, when you need it, without a second thought.
  3. Instant Support: Ever felt a tiny hiccup could derail your design flow? With embedded quick-access links to tutorials, FAQs, and live chat, we’ve ensured you’re always a step away from the help you might need.

What Does This Mean for Your Design Process? In essence, more time designing and less time navigating. By ensuring you’re immediately introduced to our best features, your journey from idea conception to realisation becomes smoother and more efficient.

Metrics Matter: Our dedication doesn’t end with this rollout. We’re actively monitoring how these changes impact your design process. From measuring the efficiency in accessing primary tools to tracking multi-tool engagement, our goal is to ensure this redesign truly elevates your experience.

Coming Up: As always, we’re receptive to your feedback. As you get accustomed to the redesigned navigation, let us know how it feels. We’re geared to make iterative changes based on your insights.

Our core goal has always been to empower your design journey. This navigation redesign, aimed at placing our most valuable tools right at your fingertips, is a testament to that commitment. Dive in, explore, and let the enhanced navigation propel your design process to new heights.
