Michael Karnjanaprakorn asked me to team up with him designing their new feature that allows any member to join groups around similar professional interests. Think of it as the “Slack for Professional Interests.”
For six weeks I worked closely with the Mobile Director and Product Manager to define the user flow, strategize the content and design the interface.
When starting on a project, I usually stick to a routine / design process that makes my designs be as consistent as possible. No matter what kind of a project it is, I stick to these golden 5 steps:
Since I’m the only designer who worked in the team and there’s no ux-researcher who could do full-scale research, so I took the initiative and created a quick sprint in order to learn more about the market, product, target audience and competition.
When I started the project, I defined a simple user flow to begin the process and asked a lot of questions to Hiretual team. The team asked me to explore those answers and turn it into some possible ideas.
Working with data collected during the research phase, I was able to set up user flows which we reviewed with the team. After that, we continued with the first version of wireframes.
After finalized the wireframe and created low-fi prototype based on the IA and flow we had via Invision, we play around with some colors and visual elements. We tried a lot, following the guide we had on the first step, gradient color, some 3D pattern, and product visualization with 3D illustration.
I used Figma to handle feedback, communication and make prototypes. Usually, I’d upload the latest version of the wireframes (and later on designs) and record voice-over videos to walk Kemar through all the new changes and updates.
Two weeks toward the end of the project, the Skillshare team finally had some solid decision for the MVP. They wanted to launch the feature as soon as possible, to test the water. So, they decided to withdraw some of the details and put it in an icebox.
