DESIGN CHALLENGES COLLECTION
As part of interview opportunities I’ve had to complete various design challenges.
Below are some responses to problems I’ve been task to solve in 3-4 hours.
TRAVEL COMPANY ANALYTICS DASHBOARD
A travel company which has a large portfolio of tours across the world that people can book, is looking to grow their customer base but don’t know how to make sense of their data.
Create an interactive data visualization that enables someone at the tour company to visualize their tour bookings.
Enable the user to view their information yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily.
Enable the user to experiment, visually, with the ability to increase advertising spend for tours which are not receiving enough traffic.
craiglist meeting scheduler
Craigslist is a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing, for sale, items wanted, services, community service, gigs, résumés, and discussion forums. Their design team recently completed user research and discovered the biggest pain point for their users is scheduling. On average a user sends 6 email exchanges to schedule with another user.
Design an integrated scheduling interface for Craigslist users to easily connect with each other.
Scheduling is 2 sided interaction. One user often initiates suggesting timing, and the other accepts or responds with additional times.
Scheduling can include the address, time, information about the classified item.
compass real estate CRM APP
Real estate agents use email more than any other tool to manage their business, but email was not designed to be a CRM and information could easily get lost and hard to manage. This case study explains my initial approach to solve this problem.
Real estate agents can manage people, listings, documents, and events in one place.
Agents can easily send, receive and save all emails and communications with their portfolio people.
Track outstanding tasks, critical dates, and special events.
Organize and create groups of people and properties.
NYC BOULDERS MOBILE APP
For the past 8 years indoor rock climbing has been one of the fastest growing sports in the US, especially among urban millennials. In 2009,13 new gyms were opened in the US and in 2015, 37 new gyms were opened. But in 2016, only 27 new gyms were opened, the first decline in growth in 8 years. Concerned about this downturn a fictional local gym called NYC Boulders, with 2 locations and one on the way, was looking for ideas of how to improve their member experience by building an app.
Members can climb daily classic problems set by gym ‘coaches’ or create their own and upload videos, grade and rate other problems.
Members can check out the leaderboard and track progress against members of the same gym or other locations.
Members can join guided trips planned by the gym according to their experience level.
