Creating an app prototype was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. I was the designer and the programer and I had to place myself in my user’s shoes to understand how I could make the most successful app possible.

Journey maps are incredibly helpful for designers and businesses to see a process laid out step by step. In life there’s no such thing as just “getting coffee”, there’s various steps that a user goes through like getting in their car or driving to the shop before they can actually “get coffee”.

I spend a lot of time on social media. So I decided to run an experiment. Specially, I would do a Twitter and Tumblr detox for five days straight and I would record every time I accidentally open the app and what I’m feeling during each time. It was eye opening to say the least, I broke less than I thought and I was able to create fun data viz in ways I had never done before. You can read more about my process here.
