After I had completed my initial round of usability testing, I reviewed my notes and wrote down any obstacles they came across on post-it notes. Through affinity mapping and analysis, I focused on addressing the top three issues that were most painful for the user. Here is what I came up with ↓
- Navigation comprehension
- Intimidating color scheme and layout (crypto doesn’t need to be cryptic)
- Lack of context for news stories on app
After identifying the pain points, I was ready to start solving these issues.
Once I felt ready to create hi-fi versions of a few of my proposed solutions, I transferred my sketches into Figma. I drafted a click through prototype of my proposed design solutions using InVision. With this new prototype, I could test again to see whether my design was effective or not.
