This application was made with the intention to be used in homeless shelters across Peoria. It includes multiple features such as a Service Locator and the Care-A-Van Schedule, both of which I designed individually (pictured above). OSF staff and Bradley University’s IM 363 class (Topics in User Experience) collaborated via meetings and research exercises. My group included myself and four other women of various cohorts. During the course of the semester, we were able to create a high fidelity design as well as a comprehensive document recording our progress throughout the semester.
During this project, I used Adobe Illustrator to make the vector elements, Adobe XD for prototyping and development, and my group collaborated in Figma to make the design document.
This application was received very well by OSF staff at both our milestones and final presentation. We mainly reported to Jump Simulation’s Scott Barrows (Simulation Programming Manager) and Jakob Plotts (UX Designer). Throughout the process, we used constructive criticism from both Professor Heather Ford and the Jump Staff members, resulting in an exceptional application prototype.
