/ Product Overview

How can we improve museum visiting experience?

A better visitor experience can lead to increased satisfaction and engagement with the museum, encouraging visitors to return and recommend the museum to others. By improving the visitor experience, museums can gain valuable insights into visitor behavior and preferences, which can inform future exhibition and educational offerings.

My client is building a web tool for museums of all sizes to enhance the experience of visitor.

My role is collaborate with product manager and museum expert, bring this idea to life with aesthetic UI design and provide a high-quality design product for client use for development work.

User ReaserchπŸ’Ž

Method 1: Questionnaire Survey & analysis

To quickly collect data and find out who is our target user, I send out 80 questionnaires and 80 of them get responded. Based on the questionnaires, I map out visitors into three types.

Down selecting design recommendation

I communicated with PM about the research insights and defined the key user cases and appropriate scope of the function set. Then I prioritized my design tasks to ensure the deliverable.

Redefined HOW MIght WeπŸ’Ž

How might we create an intractable digital brochure that offers easily accessible and up-to-date information on exhibition items, via mobile phone to museum lovers visiting a new museum for the first time?

Validating my designs

I invitedΒ four power users, aka museum experts for usability studies of my prototype. I tested the second version of my prototype using the think-aloud techniques. Afterward, IΒ conducted a post-test interview to gain insight into usability strengths and weaknesses.

The results

Based on what I got from the usability test,
I improve the web application to final high-fidelity design.

Lessons learned 🧠

If so what did I learn?

1. Keep PM in loop and communicate with team in a timely manner is very important for designer to keep on the right track.
2. Feasibility is gold. Always check logistics (tech development, cost, iteration plan) while design for solution.
3. Priority tasks in a deliver cycle.
4. I'm so proud that this Logly web App is launched!
