BBC myBBC - Action and Bundles

Project summary

Nonfictions for the BBC has been developed to keep users up-to-date BBC content that the user desires to follow. A study of how to further develop notifications was conducted to find out what advanced notification features users would like to have added to the current instalment to help streamline their experience on the BBC website.

Methods

Guerrilla testing, Product demonstration

Tools

Adobe Illustrator, Proto.io

Problem statement

Notifications for the BBC website has only been out for 4 months and the feedback from the users we good. However, many requests for new feature to improve the users' experiences was delivered by feedback. The requested features were pinned notifications, download, swipe to delete and bundled notifications.

Discovery

Consultation with UX Archetect

I began the task by consulting with the mid-weight UX Designer to see how they imagined their concept to be shaped as an interactive prototype. In terms of functionality, animation and interactive elements. I had to study her sketches, mock-ups and user journey flows to understand how shape the concept into an interactive piece.

The prototype was created with Proto.io. This service gave me the ability to fine tune the prototype's interactions and animations, whereby bring the mid-weight UX Designer's concept to life.

Define

Wireframe Sketches

Before creating the full featured interactive prototype it was important to create a paper prototype would can bring up issues, which could be difficult to correct in a digital prototype.

Develop

High-fi design development

The prototype was created with Proto.io. This service gave me the ability to fine tune the prototype's interactions and animations, whereby bring the mid-weight UX Designer's concept to life.

Deliver

Interactive prototype (Proto.io

The interactive prototype for both mobile and desktop was created to demonstrate how the feature would work for different devices size.

The prototypes were presented at a Creative Leader Management (CLM) meeting to all the creative director to show the upcoming feature and the benefits it will bring to the users.

Personal reflection

Personal Relection

This project has given more the opportnuity to create a fully interactive prototype that can communicate the new ideas on both mobile and desktop. Both click through and full interactive prototypes of very important, but it is also wise to choose the best method based on the type of feedback experience you're trying to create.
