This portfolio piece was the result of a workshop taught by Surya Vanka and Bob Graf and hosted by The School of Visual Concepts.
The design problem the workshop was given was lack of interaction between two people. Teams of 5 were to develop an app concept to helped plan an interaction between two people.
Method 1: Interviewing
A volunteer from each team went to another teams table to be interviewed. The goal of the interview was to develop a persona to design our tool for.
Another team member and I had past experiences and strengths with user interviews so we collectively came up with interview questions.
I asked the questions during the interview.
A great workshop that helped me see the entire UX process from start to finish in just 6 hours. Here are a few thought I took away from the workshop:
- Collaborative and Agile environments are great for creative solutions to user problems.
- User validation is key!
- Always have the design goal in mind when developing solutions.
- Sticky notes are the best thing ever.
