The real world application started formulating during my research phase, speaking with students and guidance counselors. This helped me build personas, understand needs, and modify the user flow. I sketched out example after example until landing of paper prototypes that were viable.
Found alternative visual methods to illustrate to the client, just how content could be presented in the users monitor. Used Sketch to create simple wirefames.
Marvel is a prototype application that I have been using due to its seamless transition to prototype.
I analyzed the current Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment standards looking for the formula that made it successful. With my end user in mind, I adapted the formula across multiple devise formats, constantly looking to improve ‘ease of use’.
Tested the alpha on multiple interfaces and provided high-level feedback, and a more granular review of the design in beta. Used SnagIt for change requests.
The VitaNavis product is customizable, e.g., the user has control over what background photo is used. Before and after shown here. Used Adobe Photoshop to create 100+ styled background images.
Clients direction: “I think it should be something nautical.” This evolved into ‘vita’, Latin for life and ‘navis’ roughly meaning ship. The supporting illustration resembles a compus, symbolism for a ship to help guide you through the journey of life! The SuperStrong assessment was a newly formulated product also needing branding. Used a sketchbook and Adobe Illustrator to create both.
