1 - Proposal
Design the user experience for a task management application Taskly. Taskly is a task management app for individuals and teams. The client provided a list of primary and secondary features for the application.
Employ analysis and design thinking to bridge the gaps between business needs, user needs, and technology. I started by creating a proposal for the client that highlighted the scope of service and design process.
2 - Business Model Analysis
Using Ash Maurya's Lean Stack appIication, I created a business model (Lean Canvas) based on the initial client statement.
3. MVP and Research
Once the lean canvas was complete, I did a competitive analysis on leading industry competitors. I used G2crowd, Quora and PC mag as review sources. These sites are great places to pin point customer pain points. My actual analysis is a 6 page spreadsheet but here is a summary and conclusion.
I contacted reviewers directly to discuss how they use their current project management software.
4. IA and card sorting
I started to create the information Archetechture based on the card sorting exercise and survey data.
5. Paper Prototypes
After the initial phase of user research was done, I began the paper prototypes. I sketched the features according to the device that the app would be displayed on.
I began wireframing my desktop, ipad and mobile version.
7- UI Kit
After low fildelity prototypes and wireframes, I moved on to create the UI Kit.
I ran a series of the following usability test: A/B Testing, yes/ no, 5 second test, and mulitclick user flow testing
. The results can be seen here
. I made changes based on the user data and finalized my high fidelity protypes.
