Mobile Prototype: Conference App
Group Project: Completed for HF765 Mobile Design
Goal: Design a mobile app for conference-goers.
Six customer interviews
Competitive SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis
V1 Prototype development
Usability testing of V1 Prototype
Mural affinity mapping exercise
Redesign and iterations of prototype
Presentation of process, final prototypes, and recommendations
Created the personas
Contributed to the SWOT analysis
Moderated 2/6 usability test sessions and note-took for 1 session
Led collaboration analysis session for study results
Affinity mapping exercise using Mural.co
Led redesign of mobile prototype, based on the usability test feedback. I organized remote meetings to demo the prototype. Based on team feedback I modified the design to create our final solution.
My Contribution Highlights
Usability Findings Analysis
I led my team through this collaboration analysis activity. From our individual notes, we put each finding on one sticky note. Each participant was a different color.
To prevent confusion, each of us started on a different participant and rotated clockwise.
After we had written all our findings, we consolidated the like findings within each participant by stacking them on top of one another. (Same colored stacks, NO RAINBOW STACKS!)
Following this exercise, we grouped findings across participants into themes and categories, e.g. navigating, wayfinding, notifications
I created a Venn Diagram to examine and categorize our findings into larger themes
One issue was that a four circle Venn Diagram doesn't work. I combined two smaller groups of interaction and responsiveness.
Four major themes identified: interaction, responsiveness, familiarity, and continuity
Conference App using Sketch (with Craft Plugin) and Invision
I redesigned a clean, simple prototype that included many of the ideas that we had initially created in our design studio (but were difficult to make functional in Axure) and to address the many problems identified in usability testing. I gained inspiration from Google calendar and conference apps identified in
Added tips to guide first time user
iOS standard radio buttons allow the user to set preferences for communication and privacy
Use of conventions such as alphabet link-anchors on right hand side, which minimizes need for users to scroll
