Desktop Web App - "Let's Assemble"


I studied User Experience and User Interface Design in a 10-week Intensive at the Codaisseur Academy.

For the Graduation Project, we were assigned the task to select and analyse a company based in the Netherlands.

Then, we would define a struggle the company currently faces and design the concept for a new feature or application in support of that company's product.

The project 

Following research of the IKEA product through quantitative (i.e. questionnaire, surveys, etc.) and qualitative (i.e. one-to-one interview) research- I chose to develop an application built into the Search Engine of the homepage.

"Everyone has an IKEA Horror Story"- my application would support in this struggle.

I illustrated the icon, imagery and approach associated with this application based on standards set by the printed IKEA manuals.

I decided to create a Player for a string of short-form (digestible) looping videos (/animations)- so the user always knows where they are in the construction process and what action to take. I developed the concepts, designed the wireframes, developed the hi-fi designs and finally user-tested the product.
