*Note: this project was initially titled "Life Milestone Planner", so some early artifacts will reflect that title.
Questionnaires and interviews were conducted to gain insights into the target population (18-35 year olds)
Results showed that of participants surveyed, a significant amount of the population lacked consistent guidance in milestone / goal planning, and would utilize technology to aid them in this if something was available.
Triangulating user insights via a multi-method approach allowed us to make inferences about the technology straight from potential users and feel confident that the data wouldn't be missing anything or result in gaps. After the interviews and questionnaires were completed, we cleaned the data and aimed to turn it into artifacts that would further aid designing.
User Storyboards and Journey Maps facilitate empathy in the design team for users at every and any step in the design process.
We first started with low fidelity hand-drawn wireframes; focusing on a minimum viable product in a Lean type workflow which allowed for a fast iterative process. Then some quick user testing sessions, then iterating on the designs and aligning them more to users needs; this refined the product in a sequential basis and moved closer to a fully realized design.
Interface design continued at various fidelity levels, with user testing ocurring throughout the versions.
With user feedback, designs were further iterated using wireflows and userflows to plan out the next versions
User testing continued throughout and valuable user feedback further molded the designs until a higher fidelity version was complete that met user and stakeholder goals
