In UK’s competitive utility market ESB Energy provides power to more than 100,000 homes each day. With 100% renewable electricity the company offers competitive prices and over 90 years worth of industry experience.
The company’s website is their most important platform and a key channel through which they communicate and engage customers. Whether they are at the acquisition, engagement, or retention stage, esbenergy.co.uk provides vital information and customer journeys. It also provides access to a customer portal where current customers can manage their accounts online.
With the company’s rebrand, the platform redesign gave us the opportunity to revitalize the digital experience and create a seamless experience for customers to connect with the company.
One particular challenge was to use the same platform to cater to both B2B and B2C clients. While the brand had to remain the same, the design system needed to support a distinct visual expression and tone of voice for the different user groups.
01. Overview & Summary
In order to realize this opportunity, WONDR created a 360° digital experience that engaged, educated, converted and empowered consumers. Setting the ESB Energy as a digital-first experience allowed the business to do so in a cost-effective and innovative manner.
02. Defining the User Experience
The initial phase focused on planning the design system and developing the assets to create consistency across the product site, acquisition funnels, and customer portal. Our team reviewed the information architecture, navigation, and content strategy and mapped out the user journeys to make sure user and business needs were met.
Working with rapid prototyping, we were able to mock-up the entire experience and define all the elements needed, from colours, styles, and buttons, to components, templates, and flows.
03. The Design System
The new design system is structured and flexible at the same time, ensuring the platform is consistent throughout and while also meeting the changing needs of the company to communicate in a wide range of subjects and channels.
