The Minimum Viable Product (MVP) of the application is to report animal incidents observed on a regular basis without putting in time and effort. Other features of the application includes adoptions, ambulance service, and vaccination camps.
How to provide an efficient way for users to report and help animals in need, through an easy-to-use interface?
I designed a platform to facilitate easy reporting of animal incidents observed on a regular basis without putting in time and effort.
Working adults, animal lovers, and animal welfare activists.
Based on the interviews conducted, I categorized the user's pain points into four prominent groups.
Below table explains the different steps a user undergoes throughout his journey in getting an animal admitted to the shelter. This study revealed the improvement opportunities existing in each step.
I conducted a competitive audit comparing two of the most popular shelters around my area. Based on the audit and the opportunities for improvement found, I prepared a report containing their strengths and weaknesses.
This study offered great insights to develop initial designs for the application.
I sketched several versions of different pages and finalized the pages by incorporating the best usability features of each version.
Wireframes for the home page can be seen below.
Testing with a broader user base and refine the designs
The application will be tested with a broader set of users including family members, users in the locality, and posted online for suggestions and improvements. Before release, final alterations will be performed based on accessibility considerations, if any.
