Cat Food Delivery App Mockup

First Project for UX Design Course

Learning UX Design has been challenging and rewarding. My first project is a mobile app for Cat Food Delivery. This course has 7 Modules. This is the fifth module product. This course is offered through Coursera and The American Dream Academy. I wanted my first project to be whimsical, playful and easy to navigate.

My First UX Project Figma Prototype

First Screen Only



Conduct UX Research and Test Early Concepts

Completed course 4 of 7 for the Professional UX Design Course through Google. Course 4 has been far easier than Course 3. Finally, learning how to design using the Figma tool, I prefer design over research. Interviewing people is a challenge, especially remotely. I posted the first page of my low fidelity prototype. The design is for an E-Commerce Cat Food Delivery Mobile App.

Wireframe Prototypes

Low Fidelity Wireframe Prototypes

Completed Module 3, using Figma to create low fidelity wireframe prototypes. Adding new words to my vocabulary. Challenging 0learning how to operate new digital software tools and design at the same time. Figma has numerous applications and layers to navigate in the creation phase. This module has been the most challenging.

Learning the process from sketching designs on paper to inserting designs in a digital format is step by step process. I learn from reviewing the designs of other students. We have peer feedback too. I am new to this process and tips are helpful.

Bias

Module 3 addressed bias in design prototyping.. Growing up in a household with a mentally and physically disabled person exposed me to discrimination and curiosity. Curisoty can be a good approach to understand and accommodate the needs of individuals. Everyone has special needs and our needs changes throughout our lives.

Crazy Eights for UX

Sharing my UX Design Journey

A fun brainstorming tool to generate a variety of ideas from the team. This can be an individual sketch exercise too. The concept is to give each team member eight minutes to sketch out eight ideas on a ‘Crazy Eights Template’. A piece of paper folded into eight squares can be used; the concept is the same. The craziness that follows can produce some wacky ideas. After the eight minutes, the team shares their Crazy Eight templates and problem solutions.

This brainstorming tool is incorporated into my UX Design curriculum. I prefer this method over listing ideas from the team at the same time. Sketching my ideas made be focus on viable solutions for my App.
