Velocity University

visual design, prototyping

Citi Velocity is Citi Bank’s flagship trading platform, based on Windows and MacOS desktop. Within Velocity, Citi Velocity University is an instructional course available to all users, developed in Adobe Flash.

Although it looked visually impressive in Flash and worked on desktop, most users found the waiting times of transitions between menus tedious after constant use – some taking up to 15 seconds.

These transitions also proved to be difficult to transfer to the web and didn’t provide the same, smooth experience as on desktop. I was charged with developing a new hierarchical structure to Citi Velocity University, whilst also adding a facility to measure the users progress.

Using two nested sidebars, behind an informative main menu, users can easily and quickly find what they are looking for and track their progress.
