Drawing App is a mobile application for artist to submit their artwork, work with a friend and join the community. If you are stuck on an idea seek help on how to improve it.

This was a personal project that I spent a large amount of time on to create something that I am passionate about and to help other artist.

Personas

Example

Based on the interviews/workshop we set up a persona. We referred to them throughout the entire product development process.

Guiding Questions:

  • At what point and why did you decide that you need personas? I needed to create a persona to figure out the needs of our customers.

  • What kind of methods did you use while developing the personas? (User research, or involving stakeholders?)

  • What information did you provide about each of the personas? (context, problems, motivations, etc)

  • How did you present this information to the product team?

  • How did the personas affect design? What new features or design changes came from the personas?

  • At which points of the design process did you reflect back on your personas?

  • What was the main purpose of your sketches? (presenting, testing, brainstorming?)

  • How did your knowledge about your users and their goals influenced your sketches?

  • How many different versions you made?

  • What were the main differences among these versions?

  • Which version did you choose and why?

  • Explain the layout and the arrangement of the elements!

  • Why did you put the elements to a certain place?

  • How did your sketches helped you more forward?
