A large scale project with remote teams from Pittsburgh, PA to Scottsdale, AZ. The task here was to create a unified administration dashboard from a mashup of 5+ other interfaces. We had over 20 people working on this project in concert with each other making this one of the largest projects that I've ever worked on.
This project started from the ground up. The design team held a two day HCD session where we gathered a ton of information and synthesized it in to manageable chunks. We followed that session up by teaming up with the system engineers and started to shape some requirements for the application. Once the requirements were generally agreed upon we had teams assigned to us and we began to design and develop in concert with each other. Usability testing was limited due to availability of the United States Army Field Support Engineers but we had a few opportunities to let the end users beat on the application for a little while. We structured some questions to elicit particular feedback but also left it to an open forum. Lastly, we adjusted based on the feedback given to us from the end users and our own subject matter experts and had a successful launch shortly after.
My focus throughout the project was getting the visual design into the mix early, getting up to speed on the domain by interviewing the end users and getting to know the developers. I was eventually responsible for the main interactions on the homepage dashboard as well as curating the entire visual design language.
