UX Design

Simple but purposeful.


We structured the sitemap to emphasize the focus on promotions and cart building. While Box Water is sold in many stores, a primary goal was to bring users into an online transactional experience.

UX Prototype

Visual Design

Making it all come together. Beautifully.

Design Comps

To support an incredibly short timeline, Traffic dove right into full color design comps.  With the help of InvisionApp, we ideated quickly on a mobile and desktop experience that allowed for strong client collaboration.

Tech Stack

We went right from Sketch to an HTML/CSS/JS static build. We leveraged Greensock for some precisely timed dynamic interactions to help the site work harder to tell Boxed Water’s story. The front-end was architected into Shopify to provide seemless check-out flow and ecommerce functionality.

Quick Execution

We launched the fully scratch-designed and hand-coded experience in just 42 days, which included an incredible amount of client collaboration.

Animating the site was critical our finished experience. Significant effort was placed on dynamic interaction and making the mobile extremely fluid. Over 70% of Boxed Water’s traffic was from mobile devices.
