As UX Researcher in a fast-paced innovaiton-oriented technology environment.
I was requested by the CTO to begin exploring and prototyping feature-components to validate his ideas for a new social network app.
I documented the functional requirements for different areas, like the feed page cards, and user-flows for the app overall app in whiteboard design sessions. I also researched and presented the most current competitive landscape. Next, I created component options and a full-featured rappid prototype of an iOS version of the applicaiton Adobe XD, which was presentated to stakeholders.
Much of the design and flow established in the initial prototypes influenced the flow of the web-responsive, and native iOS and Android applications.
