Converse & altr

From new ways to browse and find the right shoes and apparel to more frictionless check-out flows, altr and Converse work together to make their site work better for their brand, for business, and for their consumers. With a global audience of trend-setters and sneaker passionate individuals, any UX change on can have an immediate business impact. That’s a responsibility our team takes seriously and we’re proud to say, our collaboration with Converse has realized some serious results.

Learn & Plan

As with all of our projects, our work with Converse always starts with a collaborative opportunity assessment to identify and prioritize ways to optimize the experience. This process involves deep dives into site and visitor data, previous test and learn experiences, and exhaustive competitive research all considered in light of the company’s business and brand objectives. Rapid prototyping helps to guide decision-making and defines the path forward for concepting, testing, design, and delivery.
