A Next Step to the Accretion

Within 2 years of time, Evaly has become one of the fastest- growing e-commerce platform in Bangladesh. By 2021, Evaly has delivered over 10 million orders all across Bangladesh with around 2 million users.

As Evaly is introducing new subsidiaries like eFood and eHealth, its essential to improve the delivery process as well.

There are about more than 2500 delivery guys, also known as eHero, who ensure delivery of the ordered products to the consumers.


Driving user and revenue growth creatively

Product Designer - Evaly

I was assigned as a Product Designer to build eHero.

My role is to implement a design strategy that prioritzed a holistic user experience while maintaining system and brand consistency. To achieve this, we had to gone through from field research, user interviews and lots of collaboration. I also had a product manager who oversaw the process and ensured the quality of the output.

We successfully designed a product that met the needs of our users, strengthened our brand recognition, and built trust among our stakeholders.

But first.

Why Redesigning The App?

The delivery app eHero - which was on MVP stage struggled to scale alongside the hyper-growth of the company. Fundamental usability was challenged, tons of bad reviews with lots of feedback. App reliability and performance issues increased exponentially.

As evaly was growing rapidly, its important to make sure that our users get more smooth and seamless experience while delivering the products.


Providing a meaningful user experience allows to define user journeys on product that are most conducive to business success.

Evaly’s mission is to build a ecosystem where everyone has access to better services in all over Bangladesh.

Our ambitions were to create a strong foundation that embraced a rapidly evolving business and more diverse user base. Our high level goals were to make it fast and easy for everyone to use, everywhere. Give eHero more control over their time and money. Create a platform for innovation and deeper engagement by fulfilling the users need.


Picking up the old pieces

Before getting started, I didn't have  a clear mission or specific goals for the delivery experience. With pre-existing insights, I partnered with the stakeholders to explore how a delivery person was getting around with the app. It helped us to realize the app from a delivery person perspective.

While doing these, we have more clear understanding of the user pain points, so we knew the changes that we needed to consider to make the user experience better.

Creating an experience that resonates with diverse user base embracing a rapidly evolving business.

eHero has a diverse user base from 18 years old to 50 years old. While conducting user research we made sure we gained insights into the different needs and preferences from our target users. However, we weren't trying to completely change the past design. As the app has already has more than thousands of active users, we are aware of not proposing a design that may not reflect the mental model of the previous app. We need make sure users can easily adapt the new design.

I was asked to deliver an Android high‐fidelity prototype to our developers within 2 months. The combination of a fixed deadline, play-store submission time, and usability testing meant I needed to get the experience right within the first four weeks.


Spending multiple days with ehero's on the field helped to gain more insights about their pain points and needs.

Even though we have so much quantitative data in our hands, I always prefer to have qualitative research to empathise with the root of the problems.

I spent around a whole week with ehero to understand the whole user journey and how they interact with the existing app in day to day basis while delivering a product. We tested the existing app with 5 participants from different age group in the most problematic pickup areas in Dhaka. Our goals were to understand the challenges eHero and customers faced and the workarounds they employed.

From Inaccurate to Precise

Designing for what users want to know, do & feel

After gathering research data for a UX project, our next step is to analyze the data and use it to inform the design process. We mostly used FigJam to review and analyze the data that we have collected from user research, including user feedback, user behavior data, and other relevant data sources. We started looking for patterns, trends, and insights that can inform the design process by doing empathy mapping, user journey mapping, and so on.

Poorly formed user flows and lack of features cause downstream problems.

By analyzing user feedback, we understand what features and functionality are important to them and how they use the app. We need a user-friendly interface that is easy to navigate, aesthetically pleasing, and provides a seamless experience. To ensure that the app's design is consistent throughout the whole journey.

Build, Test and Iterate

To validate our each design decision, we made sure our users are always in the center of our design decisions.

We started by creating a prototype of the redesigned UX in Figma, incorporating the feedback and insights gathered from user feedback and data analysis. We then started testing the prototype with a small group of users and gathered feedback to refine the design further. We identified the key features and functionalities of the platform that are critical to the user experience, and determined which features are working well and which ones need improvement.

Final Design

Extracting Requirements with Mental Models

We were concerned that the new first-time user experience would cause issues because it was a fundamentally different flow.

In order to de-risk some of our assumptions, we created an early beta version and conducted moderated testing of the designs. To our surprise, not a single participant had trouble with it. The new design resonated well with participants, confirming our intuition around designing for speed.

A Step to the New

In the two months after my involvement in the project, we continued to evolve and polish the visual design, as well as refine the finer functional details as the app was being built. It was great to see most of my work brought to life.

On November 2nd, 2020, the new Rider app was launched all over Bangladesh as part of a campaign called Hero Day. It was a huge achievement for me, considering that it was a complete redesign and rebuild from scratch.


Positive results and much more to do

The redesign of the Android app has had a positive impact on the delivery experience, at the time of writing (3 months since launch). However, I believe this to be a behaviour change that will reveal over a longer period of time.
