Create a responsive website that gives users the ability to view nearby restaurant suggestions and view restaurants they have visited by creating a 'passport' that keeps track of them. The MVP includes the mobile and desktop version of the following pages: Explore Restaurants page, Individual Restaurants page, and User Passport page.
While I was enrolled in Lambda School for their UX Design track, I worked on this project with five students from the Web Dev track. We communicated daily through Slack and Zoom remotely to ensure the success of the project and its deployment.
• Competitive Analysis
• User Journey Map
• Brainstorming & Dot Voting
• Site Map
• Crazy 8's
• Responsive Sketches
In this phase of the design process, I started to create the wireframes from my sketches in the previous phase. I then used those to do usability testing to get insights from potential users.
After multiple rounds of usability testing, and the other forms of research I did in the 'Discovery' phase, I was ready to finalize the high fidelity designs. During this portion, I had to make some adjustments to the previous designs to reflect the insights I found in the usability testing.
The following are the final high fidelity screens that were needed to meet MVP for our team's project.
This project was only a couple of weeks long, which did not give me much time to execute the research and designs. I pushed myself a lot during this project to ensure that I didn't fall behind for my team since they all depended on my designs. Ultimately, constant communication, strict personal schedules, and lots of early sketching made this successful.
Although this was not necessarily a problem, because I received some valuable insights which was the purpose of a usability test, it still took time to make the changes. Thankfully the changes were quick fixes, and my team and I worked together to ensure the changes.
Looking back, this project pushed me greatly because of its time constraints. However, I feel very happy with the end product and seeing how great my team and I worked together to bring this to life in about two weeks. The limited research time available taught me to work flexibly and make sure that I have good time management while making my design iterations. All in all, my team and I kept the user in mind the whole way, which to me, is success in and of itself.
