In the Beginning | When I joined the team for this product, it was on the verge of being release. However the product owner felt that the state of the app wasn't up to our standards and I agreed. We gathered data via a few hallway usability tests to support our decision to postpone the release of the product. We then began redesigning the interface to improve usability and expand functionality.
Iterate, Iterate, Iterate | Based on the usability problems observed during testing and shifting business priorities, we iterated on the workflow, interface, interactions and functionality, testing with users during each iteration. Here are a few examples of the work I produced during these iterations as the sole designer and researcher on the project.
Several iterations of design, testing and lots of development later and we've successfully launched the new product to our strategic partners.
