We are thrilled to announce DOOR3 has received the GDUSA American Digital Design Award for our website and mobile redesign work for our client, Retrievr.

The GDUSA American Digital Design Award competition recognizes the power of design to make or break effective digital communications. This year the GDUSA received over 2,000 submissions, with only the top 10% being selected as winners.

Retrievr is an innovator in residential recycling. As they are expanding, they need 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.
