ULA-full (1)

Website & Rocket Builder Platform

United Launch Alliance, along with Space X, is one of the leading companies for commercial rocket sales in the world. Carbon8 and ULA worked closely to establish and perfect the design and programming of ULA's dynamic and engaging website, creating an interactive tool that allows customers and rocket enthusiasts alike to build a rocket as simply as  building a car online. 

As lead designer on this project, I re-designing the current Rocket Builder site to create publicity for the new sale of their Atlas V rocket, set to launch in Q1 of 2018. The new site incorporates more of a real-life setting for rocket launches, creating anticipation for the new rocket line. The site has a parallax effect that launches the rocket from earth and transitions into space as the user scrolls. The larger typographic elements highlight the benefits of ULA's rocket reliability. The final screen showcases a live countdown till the launch of the first Atlas V. Once the user enters the rocket builder they will be able to create their own rocket, determine it's booster capacity, predict the orbit it will travel and pick a launch date. The tool is used by ULA's sales team and is one of a kind in their industry, providing a unique look into the world of multi-million dollar rocket sales and the future of commercial space travel.

Selling Rockets: The Process

Selling Rockets: The Process

Selling Rockets: The Process

When going through the inital ideation, we began with desktop first knowing that most builders would be running this application from a browser. The inspiration for the easy step by step process was taken from car e-commerce platform builders. Unlike a car, the Atlas V aerospace rocket requires users to have a bit of knowledge up front in knowing their orbit, schedule and amount of rocket payload. From these fundementals, the application can estimate trajectory, timing and cost.

Though the final application was only five screens, all possible options for rocket, payload and orbit had to be calculated and designed, resulting in over 30 presets choices for the users final launch result. This process of research and intimiate knowledge of the Atlas V rocket was both the most intresting and time consuming.
