Consider how organizing your closet could be improved by a mobile application. 

 

Design a simple mobile application that helps users deal with the common challenges and pain points related to one of these situations. 

 

Tools: Google Slides, Paper, Markers

 

Duration: 8 days / approx 3 hours after work daily. 

The Challenge

This is my first UX challenge EVER, I didn't even know where to begin.....

 

I have never tried to create an application or designed anything ever before.

I started with brainstorming my current knowledge of closets and seeking evidence and data of other closet contents and usage.

First Design

Shown are a few screens I made in Google Slides. 

 

My first design had potential users walkthrough the app, at the time I wasn't aware it was called usability testing, or that the notes I was keeping were called iterations. 

 

Enter your Wardrobe

Here are a few first iterations high fidelity mockup screens I developed. I plan to test these hi-fidelity mockups and record interactions and touchpoints made when using this app.

Next Steps

Persona, scenario, and task creation to conduct usability testing, prototype and iterate on hi-fidelity mockups. 

A marketplace where you can buy, sell, trade or donate your wardrobe

Design your own outfit playground, draw new looks and create new styles

Each article of clothing is tracked so you know how many times it has been worn & if it’s in need of a wash or already in the laundry basket

Scan tags when purchased to preload into inventory

Links to already subscribed companies like StitchFix

Learnings

When I look back at this project I see my growth. I am able to see where methodologies and techniques come into play. 

I remember thinking there were so many foreign terms and new a whole new language. I feel empowered to know that my growth as a designer is always evolving.

 

I am excited to continually learn new skills while growing into my UX skin. 

I'm working towards 10,000 hours.
