The projects

I have worked on a variety of smaller Dashboard projects. Although they have followed a similar project process their scope has been narrower, and some are simply amendments or improvement projects. In all cases I was the senior UI and UX designer throughout the project, leading on all UX design decisions, and I wrote the HTML and CSS for the front end builds.

The brand names are hidden from the screen shots to provide some client confidentiality and dummy data is used to protect client data.

Design development of potential solutions

Each of the smaller projects always had a phase to refine our design ideas, after researching the user groups and discovering the business problem the client needed to resolve.

Ideation – brainstorming

We determine the structure of the dashboard divided by client department and user divisions and the key chart types with internal and with client brainstorming flip-chart and white-board sketching sessions.

Sketching

The layout always starts life in my sketch book, to develop a better idea of structure and content.
