My Design Process

The design process I usually use a modified form of Understand → Ideate → Prototype → Improve. I adapt the process based on the type of project. The process I used for this project is detailed below

Requirement Gathering

Ideation

Visual Identity

Wireframes & Interaction design

High Fidelity

Design

Requirement Gathering

The main stakeholders for this project are students and teachers. So the requirements were collected from their perspective. This helped me empathise with my end users. Once the requirements were collected, they were segregated into Functional requirements and Look & Feel requirements.

Ideation

 Functional and Look & Feel requirements were ideated upon to come up with solutions.

  1. WordPress was chosen as Content Management System (CMS) of choice as students were already familiar with WordPress.

  2. Two profiles can be made - One for Teachers with rights to publish (Approve) the articles and the second for students to create (write) a draft.

  3. The text editor in WordPress can handle all sorts of media including images, videos links, quotes etc. Custom fields can be added for specific media requirements.

  4. The printed version will be custom stylised so that the articles are truncated and would give a traditional newsletter like feel.

Visual Identity

The Bold retro look was liked by both the stakeholders, but there was some feedback that were needed to be taken care of before moving on to visual design

The feedbacks were an opportunities to improve and were taken care of with new ideas
