As it is important for the project to integrate seamlessly into a writer’s creative process I have used a number of user centred research methodologies. These have helped me to discover insights into the key features and inform the design.
The methods that I used were proto-personas and scenarios, ethnographic case studies into my own writing process, design probes to gain a clearer understanding of how other writers work, interviews, and online research.
Following my research process I analysed my findings by picking out key insights to create a design brief. Using this list of requirements I was able to create wireframes for a lo-fi prototype of the applications main features. I then conducted user testing scenarios to gather feedback on any accessibility issues before developing my final prototype.
