My Role

User Interface Design Development

Problem

TOL’s site was outdated. There was no vibrancy that is displayed in the work atmosophere. The site needed to be brought to life, so I updated it. 

What I learned and current issues

This was my first site that I developed and designed. I learned a lot on the way and there is a lot I wish I can change. With the knowledge I now have, the main problem with this new site is that Tree of life caters to, three main users – students, prospective clients, and general users who stumble upon the site. The new site does not function for the three main use cases. If I have the chance to do this again, I would build user personas and have different user flow maps target for each user. I would accomplish that by having a main landing page that will guide the user to what they are wanting. 

– If we have to explain the site to the user, than it should not be used.
