During a busy time in the company with big deadlines approaching, I was put in charge of managing, producing and delivering de project of the Children’s Spy Agency website.
My main tasks involved project planning, setting the timelines and deadlines, holding stakeholder meetings, researching and user testing, lo-fi prototyping, hi-fi wireframes, managing development company and QA testing.
I also worked closely with the lead Visual Designer Lucy Burns, to co-create the design following the existing style guides.
After gathering the data, I presented back the results to the stakeholders along with high level flows and a set of options which included different combination of features. These were set following the needs and goals previously discussed.
These options were also mapped against a high level timeline which helped the stakeholder decided which option to move forward with.
After agreeing the set of features for the site, I proceeded to make some sketches of how they could be distributed.
The budget and time didn’t allow for user testing with kids, so to try and gather at least some feedback, I used the sketches to do some quick paper prototypes and test them with the team.
The results from this testing and the knowledge of the team members that worked on the previous version of the site was very useful to make some decisions of features and flows. These were there turned into high level wireframes which were presented to the development team to understand feasibility.
Having this conversation helped tweak and narrow down some features in order to make the project stick to the deadline.
