Class project, 3 people, 3 weeks
We took on the perspective of the design team that was hired by scientists to find a compelling way for their research to make a direct impact on the future of biodiversity in Central America. The goal of this project is to create a dashboard about biodiversity, so information can be understood by key stakeholders at a glance and be monitored with minimal attention.
Who are the main users? What are their goals?
We started by drafting different stakeholders and elements in the system.
Explore different design ideas
We structured our process to allow for a rapid generation of several exploratory sketches. We did this in a work session format where we individually generated a new visualization within a timebox and shared with the team afterward. The goal was to generate a breadth of ideas and continue individual iterations of ideas that could naturally incorporate ideas that other team members explored.
