UX Design

Case study: GeekMum

I’ve used Design Thinking method and Human-centered design process to create this App connected to WhatsApp.

This is an App to organise contacts in relation of privacy. You can manage contacts by different sounds to understand if you want to answer or not, organise list, etc…. My Persona is a modern Mum, with a special attention for privacy. The App imports the contacts directly from the address book.

I created a persona and a user journey map to achieve empathy with my users.
This is My Persona

And this is my journey map
