User Research + Stratgies


Lux Lite Yurts is a re-brand for a Kickstarter, Gertent. They are an affordable and portable yurt company, this ux/ui system is based on an e-commerce site.


The pandemic effect:

COVID-19 has increased travel and road trips for families, couples, or people that are interested in living a nomadic lifestyle and looking to still have fun in a safe way while in quarantine. 

Lux Lite would be available for commercial event usage following the current pandemic social distance policies. 

how might we

1.  Make it affordable for everyone?

2. Organize it to allow for rental for commercial events?

3. Carry over some Mongolian culture into our system? Yurts are a place of housing for the Mongolian people.

4. Let it be an avenue for shared adventure stories?


Lux Lite Yurts is a portable yurt capable of being used for all four seasons. This allows the user to use it anytime and anywhere. Users can book to rent, shop to own, or reserve yurts for commercial events internationally.


The website or mobile app is for use to schedule, shop, and prepare users for their yurt journey. #yurtyourself

gallery is too small.

Love a tested history section, can make it stand out more with color? Does this style show up elsewhere?
