Situation

 
 
 

My role

Aurelius is a platform used by designers and product owners to collect and organize user research.

Stakeholders knew their users wanted to synthesize research findings and create research reports to share with stakeholders within Aurelius.

This would avoid the need to pull data and insights into a separate template. Our client called this feature 'Collections.’


Stakeholder interview, task flow analysis to understand platform.

Submitted feature design for Collections selected for user survey.

Incorporating design seamlessly into existing platform; creating and annotating design recommendations.
