ParkFast Site + UX

Edison ParkFast has been providing unparalleled parking to the people of New York and New Jersey for over 60 years. With parking lots and garages across Manhattan and just over the Hudson, ParkFast is regarded as a trustworthy and cost-effective parking provider. We were tasked with research, UX, and overall UI design of parkfast.com.

Personas + user journeys

When ParkFast started the process, they were focused on improving all aspects of their website with a clear focus on driving traffic away from parking aggregators and into their own site for reasons of customer retention, loyalty programs, and profit (aggregators take a large percentage of sales). With users, we found that a simple, streamlined process, a brand reputation for friendliness and safety, and overall perceived value were paramount. Personas were then structured to predict user flows across age, professions, and activity groups—all geared toward a simple process online and IRL that lowered key moments of high anxiety that were found in the aggregators' and competing lots' processes.

style tiles

As research and planning continued, we jumped into some high-level creative exploration in the form of style tiles. Working this way ensures that we weren't stepping on the more technical parts of the UX process and/or confusing the client with UI designs that aren't yet married to the results of that phase—mainly information architecture and wires. It also helped streamline part of the process on the creative side, allowing us to explore the brand, enhance it, and experiment without excessive technical concern.

Initial wires were started after we aligned on initial research and personas. Though the process was abbreviated, which you'll see in the next section, this started the conversation about site structure and ultimately lead us into the next phase of design.

high fidelity designs

After the initial UX was complete—research, flow, sitemaps, and initial wires—we continued the design process into high fidelity designs that were prototyped live from Adobe XD. Given the number of stakeholders and the lengthy initial UX process, we found that presenting extensive wireframes were slowing the schedule too much, so we opted to jump directly into high fidelity designs. All development was done in-house at ParkFast, so we handed off a final package of page designs and global styles to their developers.

Design system + style guide

Since the development was done in-house at ParkFast, we handed off a complete style guide to keep the design system streamlined and consistent. Colors, typography, input/form elements, page/column structure, and icons were provided as a starting point to inform the immediate development and most future additions to the site.
