MILA

E-commerce design for a marketplace

A marketplace for independent creators to sell their products.

The Brief

MILA is an emerging Latin art and design platform where customers find selected products based on sustainability values with a modern identity. When Juan and Camila approached me, they had one thing in mind: they wanted to create a marketplace for independent creators to sell their products.

Challenges

This project had three main requirements: 1) discover a way to bring all products in one central hub, 2) give people an outstanding browsing experience, and 3) make it look appealing to encourage new creators to be part of the platform.

Tasks

Design an unique marketplace for independent creators to showcase their products and grow their businesses.

"It was a pleasure to work with Diego. My partner and I felt guided all the way through the project. Diego has a great ability for design thinking and for user friendly business." - Camila Luque, CEO

MILA had the intention to include its platform among the go-to shopping site from customers. 

Local e-commerce looked pretty similar, so there was an opportunity to make an e-commerce experience that stands out from the very moment you land on the homepage and optimize the user experience from top to bottom.

A set of best-in-class front-end components elevates the brand and replicates the physicality of products in a digital space through compelling product details.

The design is simple, intuitive, and confident, allowing iconic styles to speak for themselves.

The result is a beautiful and seamless experience for shoppers that’s optimal for mobile and built to support an ever-increasing independent creators not only in Colombia but in Latinamerica.

Not only did I designed the front end site for customers but also the admin platform in which sellers upload new products and see their profits.

I truly believe Diego's experience possesses a whole new level of creativity, uniqueness, and passion. In my company, everyone is amazed by his work and professional skills. He has a singular ability to walk you through his designs and processes which such clarity of explanation that sometimes makes you believe you are a designer just like him.

Our KDS changed incredibly with Diego's help. From the beginning, he diagnosed the obstacles that we were putting our chefs on, and managed to turn everything around to leave us with a much more agile, simple and efficient interface. We managed to increase delivery times and reduce errors immediately. Very happy with his work.

Diego is one of a kind when it comes to his design mind. We are lucky to have him as our lead product guy because in truth he is so well rounded that he can work on mobile-web, desktop-web, mobile apps (both ios and android), admin portal, email templates etc I can go on. You normally don't find designers who can delievery quality work across this range consistenly. Thanks for being part of this team"
