||What we did
||40+ final screens in UI spec
This client asked us to create the interaction designs for new features that would be added to the product. They already had a product and robust visual design in place, which we would leverage. We worked with them through many iterations until we had captured the features and nailed the design. We delivered the designs as Balsamiq wireframe mockups, and the engineering team applied the existing visual design to them.
We developed wireframe concepts using Balsamiq mockups. These mockups allow us to focus on the interaction design elements without being distracted by the visuals.
We went through many different iterations to get this design right.
Once we supplied the interaction designs and the user interface specification, the engineering team was able to apply their own visual design.
We needed the process of Adopting a book to be incredibly simple - users might perform this task just once or twice a year. So we needed a design that would support users through the process.
During implementation the engineering team was able to find a way to further simplify the date controls into a calendar.
Once a book has been adopted, professors can make changes to them - removing chapters, adding new information. We needed a tool that would allow the professor to quickly perform key tasks.
Here you can see the design implemented.
This began as a lightweight application, with more features added over time. We charted out a plan for how to add those features and created designs so that when it was time to add them, the engineering team would know what to do.
What does it look like when the professor edits text? We walked through each of the possible data types and showed how the user would edit them.
We're happy that FlatWorld is thriving - and that we've been a part of creating this amazing application!
