Role: Product Designer

Tools: Figma, React Native, Marvel POP, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro

Responsibilities: I worked in a team of four to design and build the mobile application. We conducted user interviews, created empathy maps, and followed the design thinking process to define points of view and ideate human-centered solutions. I was in charge of the UI/UX design for our low-fidelity and high-fidelity prototypes, logo design, curating the content for the interactive modules, as well as the directing, performing, and editing of our concept video and video demo. Our solution went through several design iterations using the results from the user testing of our experience prototypes, the usability testing of our low-fidelity prototype, and the heuristic evaluation of our high-fidelity prototype. The final product is a functioning mobile application developed in React Native.
