Student Specific Landlord & Mature Student
In week one we had to create two personas that would give us a rough idea of how what our target audience would be. I chose to write as a landlord and as a mature student. I feel this was a useful exercise as it allowed me to get into the mindset of my target audience, it also helped me to come up with some key features that i would need to include in the app to make it a great user experience.
In this exercise i had to create categories that would then be put into my site plan. Once i had chosen my categories i decided to test the structure on 3 people to see if they would come to the same conclusion as myself on the app structure. They did.
Site Plan 1
Once i had decided on my headings i created a site map for my app detailing which information i would have and where you could access it from.
To ensure that my user experience was good, i created paper prototypes to try out on another 3 people. This exercise allowed me to see where i was going wrong with my user experience.
Site Plan 2
Following the paper prototype exercise i made a more detailed site plan.
Mood Board & Style Tile 2
My inspiration for these came from all things vintage.
Photoshop Mock Ups
I created these photoshop mock ups to show what my app would look like in a real life environment. These were then later shown as part of my presentation.
Once i had created my 6 mock ups i was inited for an interview with Paul where he asked me questions. I then presented him with my 2 app designs and pitched them to him as if he were a client. We both agreed that i should develop the more modern app further.
Site Plan 3
When creating my modern app i added in a few features which would resulted in the removal of some pages, altering my site plan.
Final App Design
Continuing with my design concept i created a the rest of my pages; the final outcome shown below.
