"You talk, we listen - you say, we do"
In the last 4 years, I've worked on research projects investigating the apprentice user experience (transition to FT employment, and impact of C-19/lockdown); designed new content for a leading adult skills assessment platform, researched how adult ESOL learners and practitioners currently use EdTech and their challenges, and developed and piloted an innovative custom-designed adult pedagogy for a particular category of learner as a part of a transnational project team. More recently, I've been working with NHS Digital on the research and design of a new Primary Care online procurement support app to be rolled out nationally to more than 5,500 practices, and with the Test & Trace team at the Department for Health and Social Care.
The last step of the project involves creating detailed wireframes for each screen/state of the app with detailed instructions to developers on interaction, functionality, user feedback, component placement and navigation. The more detailed this step is, the more the development can be done accurately and efficiently.
Check out the functional prototype, created using Figma, designed to demonstrate the functionality design and user flow through the app. This version is designed for desktop with the design specifically tailored to subsequent development as a responsible website design, capable of adapting to any device.
A project I'm particularly proud of involved working with a team of partners to build and deploy a national online platform that aggregates family-relevant data from all Local Authorities across England. This was achieved through researching and developing a new taxonomy (card sorting workshops), and training personnel across all local government authorities in its application as core to the metadata solution. This allows the aggregator to seamlessly receive data pushed automatically 24/7, tagged accurately to a common information architecture.
