LOOKBOOK介面及改進研究

lookbook-can-be-better

上個月開始玩LOOKBOOK(見「穿搭學問大之LOOKBOOK」),有鑑於我在這裡下的某奇怪宣言,我開始注意一些時尚品牌、保養品牌,這真不是容易的事情。像是La roche Posay,中文是「理膚寶水」,為何每個女生都可以毫不猶豫地把這四個字說出來,我就總是忘記?然後問到像是去香港可以買哪些牌子、去歐洲推薦買什麼,很多女生都可以如數家珍,這簡直是天才!

我也想要這樣。

但我切入的點仍舊是從網路。像LOOKBOOK的穿搭照都會標示品牌、價格等,是很棒的學習園地。

在我加入會員之後,他們創辦者Yuri寫了封信給我,雖然後來發現一定是群組信只是套用名字token而已,不過我還是回信寫了很多的建議給她,希望LOOKBOOK可以變得更好。

這是她寫給我的信。

她說看過我部落格,最好是看的懂還enjoy呢!之後製作多國語系網站,想使用這種讓人受寵若驚的Email行銷手段,可能要先偵測對方的語系再套用不同Email template。

總之我還是一廂情願地回了落落長的改進建議,還不包含其他如「製作手機版本」或是「其他商業模式」的建議。

節錄一些如下:

I think LOOKBOOK should…

  • has better Simplified/Traditional Chinese translations.
  • does the multi languages by countries (like facebook does).
  • does the marketing separately for each country instead of just change the words.
  • has better navigation. Now it’s simple but not easy to use enough. –> for this, I know we have different user-experience culture between UK and Asian countries, but I think yo can still find a best way to implement a perfect navigation which works all over the world.
  • have a more user-friendly search engine. –> now it’s still not easy to find what I want.
  • supply more different currencies on price tag. –> we have Traditional Chinese but we don’t have NT dollar or HK dollar!
  • show the price based on the currency of the country(language) that user is in use.

ps, 若發現我英文有錯誤歡迎指正!

主要就是幾點:翻譯不佳、介面不夠直覺、多國語系和貨幣可以更易用、搜尋方式不夠直觀等等。但已經很多天了都沒人回我,所以當初寄給我只是想宣傳他們的貼紙嘛(攤手)!

不過他們的核心「上傳照片」的流程倒是還滿順的,以下是上傳照片流程擷圖,給大家參考看看,如果要製作類似網站可以學習這樣的模式,清爽快速。

1.上傳照片、選擇是否進入編輯模式

2.有勾的話就進入編輯模式

3.像是可以加入暗角等等

4.儲存過後,填上標題,然後可以在圖上下標籤告知服裝品牌和價格等資訊。另外選最多五種主顏色,方便搜尋歸類。除了下標籤時有時稍微還是有挫折感,這一頁真的做的還不錯

5.完成時導入專門share的頁面,個人覺得這一頁讓人有點壓力,如果做成像instagram那樣,合併到上一步驟變成開關應該會比較讓人想用

真是第一次使用就上手的好用介面。怪不得大家很樂意上傳啊!(回頭看獎金獵人)
