Before creating the sitemap and wireframes, I conducted user research to determine the most important aspects of the app. The research I conducted was a competitive analysis of the most popular travel applications in app stores. This analysis allowed us to see common trends in travel apps and functions other travel apps were missing. I then went on to create a survey to send around to employees at Gannett asking them what features they would want in a travel app and what they look for when traveling to new locations. I was able to take these answers analyze them and see what features we could implement to improve their experience.


After creating beginning wireframes and getting design feedback from our creative director, we started designing the visual components of our app. We created beginning visual designs and I put the designs into so we could easily explain and show a prototype of our app to the design team and creative director. Having a prototype gave the design team quick understanding of how users would interact with our application and allowed us to take their feedback and edit out visual design and UX.
