Use Cases & User Flows

After obligatory user research, I began by brainstorming use cases and scenarios for the application. After a thorough evaluation of those use cases, I began developing user journeys to help me minimize frustration for end-users.

Interactive Prototype

I quickly developed an interactive prototype defined by the user flows I had created before.

Define Information Architecture

One of the first things I did was define the overall page structure of the site.

Create Wireframes

I created low-fidelity wireframes to get feedback from the team about the overall layout. When creating these mockups, I created mobile and desktop versions of the layout.

These mockups also helped me work with the marketing team to get copy for the website.

Develop the Website

I translated my wireframes into the new website using WordPress. I continued to work with stakeholders to update the design and copy for the site.
