Haynes Manuals MOL

Haynes Manuals On Line

Haynes Manuals, established in 1960 are vehicle manuals based in Sparkford, UK.

We have done a lot of projects for Haynes, including the OnDemand manuals (coming soon), a general upgrade of the US and UK sites, the editorial sections and then the Manuals Online section – MOL.

Design and UX journey

We have designed many elements over the last year of Haynes digital output. This is the first major project that has come to fruition with a large design aspect – the rest being largely strategic.

The design and function rests on making more use of the screen and allowing, when there is room, a rather funky tiered navigation system. For mobile you get a much simpler version which means you concentrate on your current navigation choices. Designed by Practically, created by Haynes internal team.

We replaced the existing Haynes Manuals Online (which looked like the screenshots shown here). The old interface was very hard to use, impossibly so on mobile. Moreover it was different across territories and brands making it harder still to use.

We fairly quickly realised that any redesign would also need a redesign of 2000+ covers across three territories, bikes, cars and more. So began many months of worth with Haynes data team and ourselves where we manually produced these covers – we all naively believed that these could be produced programatically.

We’d love to hear from you
