We are thrilled to announce DOOR3 has received a 2023 w3 Silver award in their general websites-Environmental & Sustainability category for our work with DOOR3 client, Retrievr.

Established in 2005, the w3 Awards celebrate digital excellence by honoring outstanding work across Websites, Marketing, Video, Mobile Sites & Apps, Social, Podcasts, and Emerging Tech. The w3 Awards is sanctioned by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an invitation-only body consisting of leading digital marketing and creative experts and all-around luminaries.

Retrievr is an innovator in residential recycling. As they are expanding, they needed to unify the different experiences they offer users. They approached DOOR3 to create a design system for them to utilize in their platforms.

Creating consistency in branding and content is a daunting task for any enterprise. Design systems are a platform to organize all the tools that can help businesses build products and their brand. It is a repository of enterprise-specific UI elements for rapidly designing applications, websites, or any digital product.

As our UX team, lead by Tom McClean, worked with Retirevr, we realized what they needed was to develop a straightforward and consistent user experience across their platform and ensure that the new unified vision was flexible enough to handle their growth.

In the end, we developed a complete mobile application reskin. We focused on streamlining Retrievr’s mobile customer experience while utilizing our custom illustrations and branding materials, creating a truly responsive and smooth application.

Along with this redesign, we created a single source of truth that they can reflect back to as a guiding framework. Their bespoke design system acts as a reference for people to guide them through future developments.

There are certain standards that Retrievr’s future endeavors necessitate, and our work ensures the core elements will be readily available, customizable, and contain implement functionalities in line with their overall vision. Styling and functionality go hand in hand, and their design system aligns them at a foundational level.

We at DOOR3 are honored to have our work recognized by such a prestigious organization. We hope to help more companies achieve their goals and create innovative, delightful products and digital solutions along the way.
