The Process

The slideshow is our journey through the design process and the choices resulting in the solution. We started with the exploration phase to zero in on our problem space. The discovery phase came next which helped us understand our users. In the design phase, we created solid framework for interaction, interface, and visual design. In the refinement stage we tested our prototype and iterated the design further.

The Prototype

Our mid-fi prototype was tested in a contextually rich environment for comprehensive observation.
