Back in 2016, I was a web designer for Lendix (now October).
Lendix allows individuals to lend directly to SMEs (Small and medium-sized enterprises). A list of open projects to fund is the key of the product.
In the early 2016, this list of SMEs was a simple table.
This was great for scannability. However, in order to lend to a company, our users wanted to sympathize with the projects. This table is lacking clear information hierarchy, but above all it needs to showcase the actual projects.
Back then I decided to switch to cards. This method shows more about the project while keeping good scannability.
However, I was still growing my design skils back then (aren't we always anyway?) so I thought doing a 2020 retake would be a good exercice.
My main focus here was to create a clear hierarchy, unclutter the overall space and bring more differentiation between an active card (you can still lend money to the project) and an inactive card (the project is closed).
I probably will do another retake in 3 years
