The following Case Study was a timed assignment for a financial tech organization. This was a freelance project with quick turnaround time.
Below you will see the parameters of the assignment, as well as, what I considered when mapping this out.
Create a survey application collecting opinions via yes/no questions.
Admins needed a dashboard view and our other users a mobile.
A mobile screen where the user answers the yes/no questions of the survey.
A desktop screen where the owners of the survey explore the data collected by the survey.
Demographic data exists for the users and can be tied in (or not) anywhere.
The users of the survey are extremely busy people, but they’re taking the survey because they've been promised to see the aggregate results.
Things I Considered
Will the user's answer all questions on one screen or one question at a time?
Will there be required confirmation at any point?
Will users have the ability to change their answers?
Will the users be able to navigate questions back and forth?
Mobile gestures or click/tap?
How will the desktop screen summarize the data? Including demographics?
How will it drill down into details?
The Trusted Whiteboard
Despite a short amount of time to produce, I turn to the whiteboard. Here I was able to sketch out some concepts and try to hit flesh out my original ideas.
This quick and messy style really allows me to let ideas flow and get a sense of direction before I sit down at the computer.
