Detailed personas of customer stakeholders were provided. In addition,
interviews with frequent online shoppers was conducted.
An analysis of other school uniform providers and fashion retailers
online was also performed.
While there are no shortage of retailers who provide school uniforms,
there is a clear opportunity for disruption. A new, modern generation of
tech savvy parents and administrators understand simple, elegant
technology that helps to make their lives a little more simple.
Create a web-based platform for parents and administrators that:
1). Makes it simpler to find their student’s approved clothes
2). Provides a more elegant, branded experience
3). Puts customers service first
DESIGN ITERATION | DESIGN HYPOTHESIS
The early wireframes were walked through with others.
Most people didn’t have the imagination to really get a good feel for the site.
Was making something safe. Miserable.
In creating a higher fidelity wireframe, there was higher fidelity feedback,
which led to better design.
DESIGN ITERATIONS | PROTOTYPE
Created a prototype in invision that captured the
screen-based version of the experience.
