Owns a home in Lower Queen Anne
During the wireframing period, the other designers and I sat down and determined the key features to add to the website in this short time frame. After consulting with the web devs we finalized our site map, cleared it with them to ensure that all our deign choices can be implemented, and got started on our wireframes.
I partnered with one designer and we worked on the wireframes and the testing script while the other designer worked on the style guide
Test if the landing page sufficiently explains Nomad's business goals
Our users, both drivers and spot owners, understood what Nomad is all about immediately.
Add push notifications when time is running out.
Long-term contracts .
Allow spot owners to improve the quality of their spot and add it to their listing to make them more attractive.
Add a crime overlay to set spot renters at ease.
Add a method to request more time.
