Vancouver-based startup Kabuni provides a community-driven marketplace that connects designers, makers and homeowners. I worked with team to analyze all research and feedback to gain user insight and incorporate this feedback into responsive web design.
Duration: 2 weeks
Methods: 10 interviews + survey results; 20 usability tests
I worked with other teams to develop an overarching strategy with a set of conceptual wireframes.
I defined and interpreted business requirements and business strategy and created storyboards, user stories, user flows, and sitemaps to communicate interaction and design ideas.
Develop high fidelity wireframes for responsive Web Application and website to iterate on and refine the existing experience. These ideas are represented by paper prototypes or interactive wireframes in low-fidelity first to validate ideas and assumptions, then move towards high fidelity design consistent with brand standards, analytics insight, and user feedback.
It involves input and ideas from different team members. I invited CEO, technical team and product manager, marketing director to sit down and review the design, and make sure we were on the same page.
Building on the user feedback loop established in previous phases, the premise of the Design phase is to put ideas in front of users, get their feedback, refine them, and repeat.
It is the practice of bringing the true nature of our work to light faster, with less emphasis on deliverables and greater focus on the actual experience being designed – by Jeff Gothelf.
It intends to provide the optimal viewing experience across a wide array of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
I collaborated with copywriter to ensure that the copy delivering the right message to user, and create the design that provides proper context.
I created and maintained Interaction Design Documentation (IDD) to document the design process. It is a recording of a strategic and creative process focused on clearly outlining issues, goals, recommendations, and guidelines, and created in a way that empowers collaboration and revisions in the future.
In two weeks time, I worked with other designer to create sitemaps for multiple digital products, write over 120 user stories, and take screenshots of current app indicating page goal, audience and interaction of each page.
