Project 1

Critique a T-shirt Website

Analyze a website to better understand its design elements and determine which are working and which may need to be changed. Think critically about how the website looks and functions and provide clear suggestions for improvements.

Project 2

Wireframe Your Redesign

Using the suggestions for improvements you noted in the previous project, update the website's design by sketching and then wireframing your ideas. Gather feedback on your initial designs before moving on to high-fidelity mockups.

Project 3

Mockup Your Redesign

With wireframing complete and feedback received, move into the next stage of the design process by adding visual design to make your website redesign come to life. Define the brand with a color palette, typography guidelines, and a brand personality. Give your case study polish by adding a mockup of the design on a device.

Project 4

Researching a Grocery Store App

Perform customer research for a grocery store app. Conduct initial user research to evaluate grocery shopping. Build a complete research plan, conduct user interviews and analyze the responses to identify the key pain points users face with grocery shopping.

Project 5

Prototyping a Grocery Store App

Create an app that solves the pain points you determined in your user interviews. Sketch, wireframe, and connect your design into an interactive prototype that can be tested. 

Project 6

Test a Grocery Store App

Using your prototype for an online grocery app, complete usability tests to gather feedback on the prototype's functionality, ease of use, and ability to solve user's shopping needs. Analyze the feedback and put together a plan for improving the app.

Project 7

B2B Wireframing

Ideate a small task flow for a business-to-business client looking to improve how two 
of their user roles (admin and basic) send an email campaign.

Project 8

Prototype and Test

Create and test prototypes for each user role 
(admin and basic) to determine strengths and weaknesses in the design. Determine next steps for improving the user experience.

Project 9

Mockup and Present

Finish your email marketing designs by adding visual design and elevating your wireframes to polished mockups. Create a presentation of your process and work to present to stakeholders.

Project 10
