Ideation & Hypothesis

Designing with clarity and integration for our primary personas

Ideation was around finding the right narrative based on who we were prioritizing for each page and identifying which flows made the most sense for each target audience. The proposed hypothesis centered on what our primary user (client decision makers) cared the most about to keep them engaged through consistently highlighting the end-to-end solution approach and help see where Karat solutions fit in their existing hiring system.

Design & Implementation

Reimagining the brand and digital experience for consistency and efficiency

Our visual efforts involved reimagining Karat's brand and refining the narrative to the end-to-end solution and it's business impact. The art direction depicted seamless engineer interactions and human-centered ethos with a professional tone. Collaborating closely with designers, developers, PMs, and clients team — we created and documented component libraries, a frefreshed design system, and design rules, ensuring consistency, efficiency and optimizing the overall experience as we built each page out.
