Project Overview

Tasks I took care of

The software I used

The design process

Discovering what’s going on out there, and how the users feel

Zara competitor's Websites succeed because of their easy navigation

H&M’s Website, with plenty of help (filters) for the users to find what they want. H&M is also a prime example of a direct competitor.

Users get frustrated because the Website doesn’t help them to find what they are looking for

Conducting a Usability Testing with Paola on the current Website. A Usability Testing is when you test a product with a user to find what’s working and what isn’t.

The problem begins when Casey has to look up items

A Site Map is a representation of the website’s skeleton (the pages within.)
The User Flow is a representation of the actions and screens that the user would take and see to accomplished a goal.
