Serving as one of the creative vendors for Budget Car, I worked closely with the internal interactive marketing team to provide web graphics, A/B testing concepts, HTML prototypes for event and promotional landing pages, among other web collateral. Our team provided the foundational responsive discussions and concepts for what came to be their website redesign project.
For over two years I worked directly with the internal team at Budget Car to execute weekly design and development tasks. I helped manage and create homepage promotion design assets as well as promotional tiles for web ads. Through A/B testing, I updated and improved website designs and flows to enhance UX, advancing and converting users to point of purchase sooner.
