To achieve an intuitive and interactive app, we started with an mvp and worked directly with users to iterate.

My core contributions as a Product Designer were:

  • Site maps
  • Task flows
  • Page flows
  • Wireframes
  • Prototypes
  • Design System
Envisioning the desktop UI.

Reflections

Map feature should be a product of its own to enable extendability into other domains like political reports, consumer surveys, humanitarian reports e.t.c.

Leveraging a frontend javascript framework enabled rapid iteration and modularity this was a game changer.

Future versions would benefit with addition of following features:

  • Search to enable better lookup of data
  • Download of specific regional dataset for further investigation
  • An API to load data, asynchronus fetching of datasets thus facilitate scaleability.
  • Shooting for the moon hear, but a discoverable section with editorial commentary would improve consumption of the report, i.e. integration with media outlet.
