How do I show a lot of complex data for directors within the Federal Reserve while making it as dead simple to consume?
The Fix -
Initially this was to be a desktop only application. After doing some preliminary user research with stakeholders and asking the simple question of "Does this director carry an iPad around?" with an answer of yes. I changed the score and focus on a mobile first solution for ease of user consumption and portability. This change in direction was met with skepticism initially but a "wait and see" approach was taken.
Upon the completion of the interactive demo created in a now defunct tool. A pitch was made to the director that would give the project a thumbs up or down. I was only tasked with coming up with the overall direction, user work-flow, interactions and visual design.
The pitch on an iPad was a hit and the project was given the green light.
Apollo KPI solution
A presentation mode was also designed with the user being able to select elements to be show and those elements resizing to accommodate the tablet in portrait or landscape orientations.
