Role & Project Summary

Project

  • Quick Project to assist in final touches on wireframes before presentation
  • Polish and overall usability sweep of wireframes before a pitch
  • Polished and completed wireframes to be able to be pitched to broader team
  • Users will have an idea of the page redesign concept
  • About 50% of the mockups were already done with a pretty solid direction. I took that direction and completed the wireframes

Project Constraints

  1. Match the existing wireframes
  2. Enhance the wireframes if needed
  3. We believe finished and polished wireframes will sell the larger team on the redesign concept

Summary

While we did not know if we would get general sign off to move forward, we did show some work in progress sketches and wires to a couple of people on the team to favorable reviews so we could move forward that the ideas were not too far off

Time constraints were the biggest challengeI looked at the total number of screens needed and divided it by how many days I was contracted to be on site to get myself a target to complete everyday and did not leave til I met that target I was only on the project for a couple days to get the project to the finish line, so the time constraint was probably the biggest one
