As part of a design sprint, I was asked to improve the voting experience at a Battle of the Bands event. The existing voting system consisted of a paper ballots voting system which wasn't scalable with the expected crowd size for the coming event.
Based on user interviews conducted with band participants, event volunteers, and event attendees; the following pain points were identified with the current event voting structure:
I was able to create a seamless digital solution which included the following:
By utilizing the goals, constraints, and frustrations collected during research, I was able to create a userflow that would ensure a seamless and improved user experience. This process allowed me to critically think through the flow of the app and identify the types of screens that would be needed in the experience.
Rapid sketching allowed me to explore different design patterns quickly while helping me understand which ones needed to carry over into the voting app design to ensure simplicity and ease-of-use.
By utilizing a style that would enhance the users experience, I was able to create a simple and functional app design for this event. I used different UI features to better inform/engage the user such as: interactive voting sliders, disabling buttons until conditions were met, and success screen popups.
