Thomson Reuters Development Community
Redesign the Developer Community platform to enhance its usability and appeal to both end user developers and content providers. The goals have been to increase engagement, get developers the information they need in a more efficient fashion, to encourage interaction and to facilitate the addition of a number of new features and content.
The project included UX and UI design.
““Killer” UI for the developer community site that did not require full site rewrite but that a) allows API providers to want to put their content on the community and b) enables developers to get their jobs done using the site.”
- Saori F., Project Manager.
- Improved navigation
- Make what is important stand out
- Create a visual data hierarchy
- Streamline and reimagine common workflows
- Maximize the value of the existing content
- Set a framework for new content

UI Design Goals
In addition to the User Experience optimization, the designs looked to create a cleaner and more modern feel that incorporates the latest
Thomson Reuters corporate branding styles
Working closely together with the Thomson Reuters Development Community team, we:
Clarified the key workflows, use cases and content types
Worked to understand existing pain points and future needs
Crafted and iterated multiple design concepts – including prototypes
Finalized and built developer friendly design guidelines
The Thomson Reuters Developers Community team was able to deliver an enhanced user experience, based on the designs and guidelines developed with Windmill Smart Solutions, that was well received by both their developer users and content provider stakeholders.
“The team here saw this as a great opportunity and were given a great design to
implement. Your design has certainly accomplished what it needed to. The response
has been off the charts supportive. We are hearing "it looks professional" "clean"
"easy to use" "fast". Thank you."
- Christian P., Project Lead

product which our Providers are able to use and expose to their customers. Our
success was dependent on your team's awesome designs, our working relationship
and the quick time to deliver.”
