You and your client will conduct a design review for your project. This will involve
performing a walk through of your wireframes with the client and then summarizing
client feedback. From there you should design new and improved wireframes, alternative UI Mockups,
a site navigation chart, and three lists of features that you plan to implement. You
will also need to create an development schedule of the next stage of your project.
We will need to schedule another meeting with your client to walk through your design
documents and receive feedback from the client.
Design Review Report
Create a 3-4 page report that includes the following:
Project title, names, client information if applicable
Mission Statement: summarize your key idea in one sentence or sentence fragment
Audience: a paragraph describing your audience.
Summary of user feedback: described the outcomes from your wireframe user
testing on 10/27. List at least three issues that were raised AND how these issues
are fixed in your updated design (e.g., different layout, improved messaging, dropped feature).
Improved Stack of Wireframes: update your wireframes that incorporate
the user feedback. Your additional wireframes should focus on tweaking the
interactive design. That is, you may have wireframes that are 95% similar but
differ only in that they highlight some of the more subtle aspects/components
of the interactive design.
UI Mockups: create 2 UI mockups for each of the key web pages for
your site. Mockups ares used to explore visual design (color, layout, imagery,
style, etc.). During user testing, you will use these alternative mockups to
elicit feedback from users based on a compare & contrast exercise.
Site Navigation Chart::reate a simple site navigation chart that
shows how the views of your app are linked. Explicitly show how navigation is
performed (e.g., tabs)
Three List of Features::
Prototype Features: a list of things that you plan to implement in the next four weeks
MVP Features: the minimum set of features that you would need to implement before you could launch your site
Future Features: things that would make your app a complete app but you will not implement unless your MVP gains traction
Development Plan: Describe the expected stages of development for your
site. For each stage, what will be developed & delivered, who is responsible for it,
and when will it be completed? Break your development plan into week-long stages
and tie it to your prototype features.
Review the Design lecture notes for details and illustrative examples.
In class (11/7), we will be doing a second round of user testing on your
wireframes and UI Mockups. Please bring 3 copies of this material so that they
can be marked up by test subjects.
