After getting aligned with the team and analyzing provided APIs, we started collaboratively building an information architecture of the app.

Upon coming back from the trip, I summarized all the findings and started working on the experience design of the app. I started by collaborating with our back end engineers to incorporate real-world data into our design knowledge base.

Interaction Flows

Next, I created wireframe prototypes and interaction flows, where I communicated to developers how the app should behave from high-level navigation maps to low-level interaction flows of particular parts of the user interface.

Visual Design

Visual Design

For the visual design it was important to incorporate certain element of the existing branding. The USSA, being a government body, was quite a mess in that regard. But the Ski Racing magazine had an identity system that was set to work great for what we were trying to achieve. It had big bold colors and headlines, modern fonts, and recognizable branding.
