Yarden Shaviv has been an occupational therapist for children for over ten years. Her overall mission is to empower her patients (and their parents) by providing them with tools for development and advancement in a caring, professional way.
She recently started working as an independent occupational therapist. She needed an easy way to streamline her lead generation process, and at the same time, her marketing funnel.
As the lead designer of this project, I led the end-to-end design process from user research to the end product. I also created a brand style guide for developing a consistent brand for the customer.
In Yarden Shaviv's website's design process, I took a goal-directed design approach that helped us move along through the timeline smoothly.
My process consisted of an introduction meeting, competitive analysis, stakeholder interviews, and most importantly our persona hypothesis construction. But first I started off by asking myself a few initial key questions.
In order to construct a concise and solid foundation for Yarden Shaviv’s website, I had to venture out and see what the other child occupational therapists were already doing and what user goals they were not reaching. I evaluated several features deemed vital from user surveys and identified which ones our website could capitalize on to have a leg up over other websites.
I found that only three of the five main competitors offered users relevant information regarding occupational therapy. Even then, the competitors' informational pages are very limited, and don’t address the users’ pain points or needs . Only two of the competitors make use of users’ testamionials.
First, I surveyed 90 parents who are struggling with issues regarding their child’s development.
I INTERVIEWED 12 PARENTS TO CHILDREN WHO ARE CURRENTLY DEALING WITH CHILD DEVELOPMENT ISSUES AND MEET THE REQUIREMENTS ABOVE.
Framing the problems
FOR THE CLIENT
FOR THE USERS
From entering the site to submitting a form, there were lots of features to consider.
I used the card sorting method to narrow it down and identify what features should exist that aligned with the client’s goals and the users' main goals and needs.
After analyzing all of the data from the UX research, I created a list of relevant visual themes and effective copy guidelines for the new website. I then created detailed wireframes that helped make navigation seamless and straightforward. Although there were several iterations after the initial sketches, these digital wireframes helped solidify the overall user experience of the website.

The mood boards are focused on calming elements from the medical world and Alternative Medicine. the goal was to create a visual language that conveys the idea of support, organic movement, and the nurturing aspects of occupational therapy. With that in mind, I tried to make the brand identity as personal as possible, by using hand-drawn icons and using real-life images for inspiration.
