For years bullying was the nightly news & headline that brought on school shootings. This seemed to be in epidemic proportions.
Develop an app that would help combat, reduce, de-escalate bullying situations in schools.
While conducting competitive analysis I was able to form questions to ask our users what features they found necessary and brought those features up to our team to implement into our app.
My Prototypes & Wireframes were designed by hand sketch & power point to show User Flow. Later when the App was in Beta, I did my own tests on Mapping to ensure we had the correct User Flow, prior to actual User Tests. Once critiqued if any issues were found, I discussed them with MD * the founder* and we then had the Development & Software Teams involved to fix those issues.
Thru user interviews, I learned that the app could and SHOULD be used for more than we originally anticipated. Other uses were; to de-escalate & anti-bullying for college students, helpful to use on blind dates, real estate agents afraid to show homes alone, marriage & custody issues, domestic violence, road rage, car accidents, use to document or if witnessing incidents, police using excessive force & so much more.
After conducting Usability Tests I was able to validate key parts of the Design and Collaborate with the rest of the team on those findings. Add features and refine the Design and Interactive elements. This was our process until we came up with the final design and launched in May 2014.
