She is doing a lot of meetings and frequently needs to double-check online terms and idioms of the Videogame Industry and 3D Art. She has to browse and read through entire blogs to found the definition of what she is looking for.

Patricia’s Goal:

Learnings



I learned important lessons during the process of this project that have influenced my work moving forward.

☝ Wireframes are the hardest thing coming from Design and Art Direction as I tent to finalize a design in detail, but I start learning that the less a wireframe is detailed, the easy to draft solutions afterwords.

☝ Prepping the scenarios in the user testing is key and very helpful to succeed into a smooth user testing.



Next Steps for Jar



This project was realized during the Intro to UX Course at Career Foundry, I’d like to

➡️ I’d like to work on the social aspect of Jar, as a space where the creative communities can contribuite sustain and evolve creative and professional jargons.

➡️ I’d like to work better of the home feed, developing new interactions to study and memorize new words. Quiz, word games or other flashcards formats for example.
