Modern UX/UI

Meaningful and impactful user experiences

First and foremost, our goal was to enhance the profile of MEDF, deepen its footprint and develop a web presence that reflected its status as an enabler for advancing economic development activities. MEDF worked with Unite Interactive to increase the volume of inquiries in the investment fund and attract the attention of users through various digital channels.

The User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) of the site was built to offer tailored experiences matched to multiple client considerations and investment requests. The simplicity of the UX/UI ensured users could easily move from high-level content to detailed information about the different investing and financing options available through MEDF.

We designed a simplistic, yet immersive mobile user experience with clear and informative calls to action throughout.

We worked with MEDF to further elevate their initial branding concept, by complimenting their digital strategy with print and video services to help "tell their story".
