The NimbleCommerce tool is a publisher, supplier and affiliate program platform for group buying and local e-commerce. This product gives clients the ability to compete with Groupon and LivingSocial by running their own product with their own brand.

Challenging due to the amount of features in this product. Get clear market analysis and usability tests with our current merchants and provide detailed specifications for their needs. This was a new space for group buying, so it was important to provide valid clean flows for all use cases such as email campaigns, reporting, design templates and analytics to a userbase that was learning this tool.

My inspiration on the visual design side came from Etrade. It is a clean stock-trading tool that has kind of a flare of colors but not to overwhelming. I used the accent green color for important areas and small colorful iconography when needed. The main sections were kept white with accent colors so the data and instructions were legible.
Dashboard screens:
The dashboard was designed for alerting the publisher of current fix's and releases that the NimbleCommerce team will be working on. The page is broken down into sections that the Publisher needs for a quick overview of the health of the business. This was the main focal point of the tool. It needed to be clear concise and give the user the ability to get data to bring to various stakeholders fast.
