Team I worked with two other visual designers, Joshua Kramer and Kacie Eberhart; Two UX designers, Amanda Hughes and McKenzie Carlile; Two Researchers, Frances DiMare and Tina Zeng; and a Front-end Developer, Tom Workman. I also worked with design, offering management, and engineering located in the UK, India, and Japan.
Challenge Our mission was to design an experience that will enable data teams to discover, ingest, catalog, govern, and analyze information.
Homepage
I worked closely with Kacie Eberhart to design the WDP homepage. Our challenge was to create a space where the user could see and quickly scan their important data in one place. We created a card system to create spaces for information to populate the more the product is used. The homepage design had to fit each product on the platform while still looking cohesive.
Iteration
I made a lot of lo-fi sketches to get the basic layout down before finalizing the concept. My goal was to have the cards fit nicely on the homepage without crowding the space. One of my blue sky ideas was to give the user the option to move the cards around and order them by importance.
Testing
Once the homepage design was finalized Kacie and I handed it off to our researchers to complete some A B testing. We learned that the user liked the card layout but wasn’t interested in moving them around. Once the homepage design was finalized Kacie and I handed it off to our researchers to complete some A B testing.
