From the feedback provided from the crit, I have developed my final prototype.
A way of improving my designs was by incorporating a digital interface instead of a poster along with a developed acetate viewing tool. I started re-designing the interface by choosing one subject to look at, Brexit. I chose Brexit as its a current matter and there are large amounts of information, whether that be a timeline of events or things that are being said by Parliment.
I chose to design a series of key events within four interfaces. To understand the structure and order of Brexit, I created a timeline of events..
Creating a timeline has allowed me to point out, what I feel are most important moments, from the start to the present day.
I have decided to create an interface for the following:
- Parties promoting their manifestos
- Statistics of the leave to vote percentage
- Change of Primister
- Rejection of Brexit deal (present day)
All of these points will be contextualised further within the interfaces.
To apply interaction, each interface will provide a series of buttons which informs the user of other information that is important to that time. I have used XD and Photoshop to produce these designs.
Additionally, I have developed the acetate tool which allows the user to view both images. Based on the feedback from the crit, it was suggested to add text to inform the user of how the object is used.
I also realised there were things that could be improved, size being one of them. I have reduced this as if feel it was too big, especially due to it being used for the eyes. I have also added text.
Now that I had developed my designs based on my feedback, I thought it was only necessary to conduct some testing on the corresoponding platform.
On an iPad, I was able to use my design and gather feedback from my peers, as well as test the acetate tool.
Testing allowed me to gather more feedback which I could apply again and develop this into a final outcome.
I improved this again with the following feedback:
- Make buttons clearer and more noticeable
- Move disclaimer onto a separate page, not noticeable
- Make the tool slightly bigger
- Add a click signifier
- Reduce the size of the text
- Center text
For the final time, I responded to the feedback and added to my designs and tool.
To the tool, I have increased the size slightly and reduced the size of the text and centred it
Through both the interfaces and the tool, I was able to combine the use and ascetically together through design and the subject, for example red, white and blue being the colours of the United Kingdom.
