Economical Insurance

August 2016

Fresh look for one of Canada’s oldest and largest insurance companies.

I was brought into the Economical project midway through the planned set of sprints with ecentricarts. The team needed front end help to surge through the heavy backlog of desired features.

The fully responsive, AODA accessible redesigned site was successfully launched after intensive QA and UAT – which I remained on the team throughout.

Find a broker - The main feature I was recruited to the Economical team to build is the Google Maps based “Find a Broker” widget. The feature is custom built from Google’s Maps API and powered by Knockout.
Leadership panels - A favourite feature from the previous (desktop-only) site, the leadership bio panels were a tough piece to work out mobile reflow and aria (accessibility) handling for. Naturally, this made for a fun challenge.
