A mobile application to help parents manage their kids carpool schedules, and also gives the parents security that their child arrived safely.
We began the discovery process by conducting interviews with a couple of parents and found that managing carpool schedules is a difficult task. Parents wanted more information about where their kids are, but did not want to be obtrusive.
With all that in mind, we came up with preliminary wireframes on a whiteboard, then transferred it to a paper prototype. We then conducted think-aloud studies on the paper prototype to see where we could still improve. The design was then iterated upon a number of times, both to increase usability and enhance the visual design. We began with a paper prototype, moved to an interactive prototype in Axure, and then did a number of iterations in Photoshop before arriving at the final design.
