Redgate produces tools for developers and database professionals. I worked for Redgate as a designer and as head of user experience for four years.
During my time at Redgate I contributed designs and research work to several of their products, most notably the SQL Compare and related suite of products.
I conducted over a hundred usability tests and interviews on real products and on prototypes or mockups.
I was also the lead designer on the game changing feature called “Migrations” which linked their flagship products together to form the basis of version control for database structured and data.
I was lead designer and project manager on the first major website redesign Redgate undertook in several years.
Besides being a fun design project, it was an exercise in internal politics and consensus building.
The current website has (thankfully) moved on but below you can see the basic change.
I also introduced split testing to the marketing team and ran an abundance of tests on landing pages, ads, download pages, and shopping cart.
Below you can see a few of the results.
