This client had a full-service law practice management software that they were looking to expand upon. Their goal was to add a legal search portal for other lawyers which would simplify a lot of various tasks as well as provide advertisement for our client. This project came with a very tight deadline, so we had to work fast.
We began researching what features the user would want by doing:
- Stakeholder Interviews
- Benchmark Analysis
- User and Persona Research
From our research I developed a sitemap:
Then I put together some wireframes to ensure that we all the correct functionality was on the correct pages.
Once the wireframes were reviewed and revised, I began developing the design. The client was looking for something very clean and something akin to their current branding.
This new web app needed to have the ability to smart search or to input certain information to pull up the correct case study.
It also needed the ability to filter by:
- Date Added
It needed to inform the user about any recently added cases since they last logged on.
Some added functionality included:
- Viewing all search results
- Viewing/adding notes
- Viewing the Case Study
- Adding/Editing Tags
The case study needed to be easily readable, so all other secondary elements are collapsable.
The workflow for uploading a new case study was explored and revised multiple times.
I finished by creating a completely interactive prototype for the client to present. It received very positive feedback and is pending approval.
