Research, UX/UI Design
The Problem: Victims of sexual assault were being traumatized again when investigators needed to reintroduce them back into their investigation after many years. When a hit was received on a survivors rape kit exam evidence, they were notified either with an abrupt phone call or home visit. Officers wanted a way to keep track of victims of sexual assault. Most DNA kits remained untouched on shelves because cases stalled due to outdated contact information. Crisis advocates needed a way to be connected to both the investigation and the victim throughout the process.
RESEARCH: I interviewed law enforcement officers, rape crisis advocates, and actual victims of sexual assault.
STORYBOARDS/EPICS: Using Taiga.io, I created stories and epics that enabled me to manage the process flow and keep in line with the established timeline for the project.
SKETCHES & WIREFRAMES: Allowed me to create visual concepts of the ideas that I had regarding the functionality of the application.
PROTOTYPE 1 (BLUE): Created using Adobe XD and Invision.
I tested this prototype with a small group of women who were questioned about the look, and use of the application. Insights gained pertained to color, and font selection.
PROTOTYPE II (PURPLE): This was the final prototype and presented to my peers.
This project won best in class and was voted on by my peers, and among a group of local industry judges.
