I worked directly with Adspur's founder and his ad agency contacts with a fast feedback loop to establish key user journeys and points where our tool could add value. There were many opportunities to take effort out or even remove repetitive tasks. From here we were able to key concepts and an information architecture that made sense to users. Navigation was critical to get right as the tool would be used on a daily basis and any friction points would compound quickly.

In weeks, we had our first complete version of Adspur Pro. The solution allows users to: Upload and organize work, Submit campaigns for awards, track success and plan for future submissions. I worked very closely with Adspur's engineers to develop a design system from the outset - making it efficient to refine existing features and create new ones.

"The workshops we did with Rob were incredibly useful and resulted in so many ideas for enhancing the service we provide. Even better, we've set up systems for gathering guest feedback ourselves!"
