UX Case Study: Redefining Design Workflows with WaddiAI
Marketing teams often face challenges in managing various aspects of their design workflow. From creating visually appealing graphics to generating audio content and scheduling social media posts, the process can be time-consuming and require expertise in multiple tools. WaddiAI aims to address this problem by providing an all-in-one solution that streamlines the design process, enabling marketing teams to accomplish their tasks more efficiently and effectively.
The target users for WaddiAI are marketing teams from diverse industries and organizations. These teams range from small businesses to large enterprises, all seeking a comprehensive and user-friendly design platform that integrates multiple functionalities. The platform caters to marketers who need to create eye-catching graphics, convert written content to audio for podcasts or voiceovers, and efficiently manage their social media presence by scheduling posts.
To understand the pain points and needs of marketing teams, we conducted user research through interviews and surveys. The research revealed common challenges such as the need for a centralized design platform, time constraints, and the requirement for quick and easy content generation. Additionally, we identified the importance of seamless collaboration, as marketing teams often work in cross-functional environments.
- Information Architecture: Based on user research insights, I worked on optimizing the information architecture of the WaddiAI platform. I conducted card sorting exercises and created user flow diagrams to ensure a logical and intuitive structure. The goal was to make it easy for users to navigate between the different functionalities seamlessly.
- Wireframing and Prototyping: Using the insights gathered, I created low-fidelity wireframes to define the layout, structure, and interactions of the various features within WaddiAI. These wireframes were iteratively refined based on user feedback and usability testing. Once the wireframes were finalized, interactive prototypes were developed to simulate the user experience and validate the design decisions.
- Visual Design: Collaborating with the visual design team, I ensured that the visual elements of WaddiAI aligned with the brand's identity while maintaining a clean and intuitive interface. Consistent use of color, typography, and visual hierarchy was employed to enhance usability and provide a delightful user experience.
- Usability Testing: Throughout the design process, usability testing sessions were conducted to gather feedback from target users. This allowed us to identify pain points, discover areas of improvement, and validate the effectiveness of the design solutions implemented. Iterations were made based on the insights gained from these sessions.
