Unpakt had made some headway in improving the moving process by allowing users to get moving quotes online without having to call movers or have them do an onsite inspection. However, the process of creating an inventory on the Unpakt website was confusing, inaccurate, and awkwardly desktop bound.


Conducted over more than a year, this project involved partnering with a product manager, UI designer, content strategist, and a small engineering team located in New York to conduct several research studies, formulate and refine designs, prototype, build, and deliver a native iOS companion app and updated online inventory editor tool.
