research

user interview

From my interview sessions, I was able to find interesting behaviors/habits, themes, and trends. For instance, some of my interviewees had specific orders in which they used the apps/features, or when they would use the apps/features (eating in vs going out).

persona

 I created a persona to guide our user-centered design process from my research.

A few must have features:

  • Eliminate cuisine types the user isn't interested in
  • Eliminate the types of food the user isn't interested in
  • Photos of the food and interiors
  • Information of the restaurant, such as hours, location, and accessibility

userflow

This is a "happy path" userflow. Assuming that the user already joined Picky, this userflow follows the ideal steps the user will make to find a restaurant of their choice.
