User Research: Summary

My research goal is to better understand the problems from users perspective while searching for areas of interest

I conducted interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users I’m designing for and their needs. The primary user group identified through research was homemaker  and single mother who works as a software engineer.

Paper Wireframes

Taking the time to draft iterations of each screen of the app on paper ensured that the elements that made it to digital wireframes would be well-suited to address user pain points. For the home screen

Digital Wireframes

As the initial design phase continued, I made sure to base screen designs on feedback and findings from  the user research.
Easy navigation was a key user need to address in the designs in addition to equipping the app to work with assistive technologies.

Mockups

There were a few actionable insights I came up with from the usability studies. One of these was redesigning blood test reports within the app’s home screen to help users save even more time.

The early designs allowed for some customization, but after the usability study, I added More details so that user can choose easily. This gives users the ability to select according to their dietary and health needs.

Accessibility  Considerations

1

Used detailed images for burgers and ingredients to help all users better understand the designs.

2

Used icons to help make navigation easier.

3

Provided access to users who are vision impaired through adding alt text to images for screen readers.

Takeaways

Impact:
 

When possible, strategically surprise people with positive affirmations for when they achieve their goals or certain journey milestones so that we can help them stay on track to make progress.

What I learned:

I've learnt more about the positive and negatives of behavioural design and how it can be used as a tool for good or a tool used for negative persuasion and addiction, as we see in many mainstream tech products today. This work has inspired me to create a resource centre to help other product people learn about what behavioural design entails, how we can utilise tools and techniques in our thinking process and design with an ethical lens that prioritises the long-term goal of empowering people to become better versions of themselves.

next steps

1

Conduct more user research to determine best colors for app.

2

Conduct another round of usability studies to validate whether the pain points users experienced have been effectively addressed.

3

Focus on new prototypes for home screen so that users get best and user friendly app experience.
