Last year we started a new partnership with EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland, and we helped their innovation team create a new platform called Levo.
We were very excited to start a new collaboration with a client who wants to have an impact on the environment and has the vision to enable a world in which entrepreneurial success is synonymous with social and environmental value creation.
This was –and still is– a very new topic for us, so we started by asking many questions that, fortunately, the Levo team was willing to gladly answer.
Moreover, being a project completely built from scratch, we knew trust and teamwork was very important, so the first move was to set up a weekly meeting to discuss every single design direction, exchange ideas, and answer all the questions that came up.
Taking into consideration that each assessment takes around 2 or 3 hours to be completed, one of the main challenges was to show the information for each step in a way that the users don’t get lost in the middle of each assessment and abandon the platform; that’s why, by conducting three workshops, we had the chance to co-create the future of the platform.
After our first assumptions were in a wireframe, the user testing left a clearer direction for the final product.
Even though the project is still a work in progress, we just released the MVP version with main features that Levo had asked for.
This was, without a doubt, one of the most intense, challenging, and passionate projects that Legacy has taken on; the dynamic with the client and all the hours invested were completely worth it and we’re very proud of it.
