Pitch & Demo Video
Collaborating with Developers
Design never occurs in isolation - it is done in a team and it was fascinating collaborating with developers for the first time - and virtually through Zoom! I learned that it is critical to have open communication and to understand the technical limitations and strengths of the team especially with the 36 hour time limit.
Test, test, test!
As the lead UX/UI designer on the project, I advocated for usability testing throughout the project. I learned that it is important to constantly get feedback to iterate on the design. We uncovered a lot of opportunities for improvement within the 36 hours from speaking to mentors and conducting usability testing with representative users.
