A leader in credit and identity monitoring, Experian was looking for a new, user-centered strategy to guide the future of its credit, identity, and online safety tools.

Through a combination of user research, concepting, and validation, we worked alongside Experian to reimagine its future product experiences, building strategies to better meet the needs of its users.

Building alignment across teams

Workshopping with product and engineering groups, we immersed ourselves in Experian’s product and business goals, drawing on domain knowledge across disciplines. Establishing a shared understanding aligned our teams, informing the hypotheses and assumptions we validated over the course of the program.

Throughout our engagement, we worked closely with Experian’s stakeholders, facilitating full-team reviews, concepting, and research sessions.

Generating future product concepts to protect children online

To develop new concepts for Experian’s monitoring tools, we interviewed dozens of parents in their home using generative research exercises. These interviews allowed the team to establish user archetypes and detailed journeys.

Through a collaborative process, we synthesized over 1,600 data points, identifying key patterns and insights, forging connections between common user needs and behaviors.

Developing a product strategy based on true user feedback

Based on our synthesis, we created dozens of seed ideas that we refined into hero concepts for user testing.

Concepts were taken back to parents to validate resonance. From these sessions, we developed a strategy for Experian’s future service offerings, in addition to a set of experience guidelines to inform future explorations and strategy.

Reimagining Experian’s existing financial and identity monitoring tools

In addition to generating new product concepts, we also worked with Experian’s teams to reimagine how their existing Financial and Identity monitoring tools could better evolve to meet the needs of their customers.

Guided by Experian’s existing research and deep stakeholder knowledge, we reimagined the product from the ground up, revisiting everything from information architecture and primary user journeys, to feature priority, content messaging, and visual design. The resulting platform put Experian’s users first, focusing on contextual education that clarified the credit and identity monitoring process, and personalized product experiences that could grow with users over time.

Using high-fidelity prototyping to validate user needs

To guide our product decisions, we created detailed design prototypes capturing primary user flows to validate with Experian’s target user bases.

Throughout validation, we iterated on the platform, making user-defined improvements to ensure each adjustment met real expectations and needs. At the end, we were able to provide Experian with a new design system and fully validated product experience ready for implementation.

This feels intuitive... I knew where things were when you asked.

A foundation for continued product growth and evolution

Guided by our research and validation insights, we continue to work with Experian’s teams to evolve their product experiences.

As an extension of our work, we have also partnered with Experian’s engineering team to establish a comprehensive compontent library to support our new design system. Read more about our Experian component library work here.
