DISCOVERY SESSION

We met with the client to discuss the background on the website including who is the audience, website goals, branding guidelines, and technology requirements.

Design

MOBILE & DESKTOP WIREFRAMES

We created mobile and desktop wireframes for the four major pages for the website: Homepage, Schedule, FAQ, and Registration.

Validate

USABILITY TESTING & PROTOTYPE

After a round of updates to the wireframes, I created a prototype and did usability testing with 6 people who were representative of our initial demographic survey. Our testing session including asking about general technology and social media usage as well as understanding of the pages in the site. We found folks generally understood the intent of these pages: Homepage, Schedule, FAQ, and Registration page. The early design did reveal that there was confusion about the relationship between the organizer for the event Voces Oral History Project and the actual event Voces Short Courses.
