SOX App: HCI/UX course project
From the 1st assignment for the HCI/UX Course that I completed at IADT in 2015: Special Purpose Award, Grade B, NFQ level 8.
Design an App. Mine was the profoundly silly and non-viable SOX App - which would enable sockophiles to tag and keep track of their precious socks throughout the laundering process to prevent sock losses, or keep track of ones to be replaced.
The brief didn't require the App to be a sensible proposal, but for us to go through the process of designing an App - using the knowledge gained from the college course.
I also created 4 user personas for the App.
HTA/Hierarchical Task Analysis:
Everything always starts on paper. And in the first 2 sketches below, you can see that I'm thinking in a real-world way. Imagining an actual person, socks, washer-dryer machine, clothes line etc. In fact, not just an actual person, but also imagining myself in that real-workd situation doing what they want to do: imagining the user journey and the possible scenarios within it.
