The smart way to create marketing documents that work
User researchUX

Xara Cloud is a document creation and editing tool that enables anyone to create professional quality marketing materials for their business. No design experience needed.

The challenge

Since the beginning of 2019 we have been supporting them with UX Consultancy to help them recognize the needs of their users and achieve business objectives.

Xara Cloud competes against large world-renowned companies, however we have managed to consolidate an important market niche in Europe and the United States by showing the unique qualities of the platform and reducing the learning curve of users.


Some of the UX methods I run to find the best insights, validate design or functionality ideas, or even prepare for major platform updates were:

  • Remote usability testing
  • Low and High fidelity prototypes
  • Google´s HEART framework
  • Heuristic diagnoses

We helped design, test and improve from MVP 3 to 5. We also redesign important aspects of the interface and workflows such as on boarding, Editor, Dashboard, etc.
