Food service website evaluation. Hello Fresh

My Role: Evaluate Homepage UX of the Hello Fresh website

Platform: Web

Production Year: 2016

Results: Improve the homepage design to properly communicate the service to visitors and lead them to the checkout journey

Brief:

At HelloFresh, our aim is to make cooking enjoyable and approachable for everyone. Our emphasis is on delivering quality ingredients and delicious recipes to our customers.

One of the biggest challenges that the HelloFresh website faces is to clearly communicate what we do to uninformed visitors. Our customers especially have trouble understanding that we have a subscription model and the exact pricing of a product they are getting.

Instructions:

I wouldn’t touch a thing. This is great.

Said no designer ever!

In today’s world web technology is not a holy grail with which you finish one and go to another project.

Brand reflection is a never-ending story. After the wheel of business has turned forward, processes go in circles with constant reviews, analyses, and bending according to the needs of clients.

 

Readability

By choosing the Cronos font, which has straight lines, we avoid blurry capitals in the font on non – retina devices. Besides sharp capitals (Stem) we have curvy endings which give a happy note to it.

 

Consistency

Do not confuse the customers.

I start from an assumption that the majority of people visiting your website have a lot of work and no time for thinking.

Let’s choose one color for the clickable things.

On the current website, the confusing thing for me is the difference between visual accent and link.

The biggest inconsistency is the linking of the logo. The upper logo is a link to the home page, while the logo in the footer is not a link.

Can you guess 10 out of 10 what is a link on the picture to the right?

Or is this a little bit easier?

Let’s make all calls to action and links orange.

Let’s take the gray out because it indicates inactive.

Let’s link the logo in the footer to the home page, or change it to the back to the top button on mouse hover.

 

Grouping the content


In focus

Intro section

In this part, I have a problem with section 1 because I have two focuses of the same importance.

On the left side, we have got a nice photo which takes our attention off the button. On the right side, we have got a bleak photograph in the background which kills readability. I resolved this by adding a title and a CTA button in the middle and spreading a composition around it.
