I was part of the team with Clearleft, a design agency, to help redesign the burberry.com checkout with the role of a user researcher. The challenge was to create a modern website checkout that evoked the Burberry brand. The Burberry team needed confidence that customers felt like it was a Burberry experience. I needed to find a way to uncover and present evidence of this emotional story.

They may have a good looking website, offer fixed prices, and have lots of clients similar to you on the roster. However, with most web and marketing agencies, it’s important to understand their approach to designing, building your website includes and can miss out.
