Netbiscuits Visitor Flow Web App

Design | Development | Mobile

Visitor Flow goes beyond traditional analytics by clearly showing which content drives the highest traffic, broken down by multiscreen categories. It shows how visitors move through your website and how engagement changes across subsequent pages and content types. In a nutshell, Visitor Flow unlocks the data to identify what’s working and what isn’t and helps you quickly fix multiscreen user experience problems.

Wireframes and Research

I worked with the Product Manager and Java developers and come up with wireframes and designs. The challenge was to set out the information architecture and present the data in a logical way that was easy for the user to read. My task was to research the best Front End technologies to plot the sankey diagrams to fit the design. I then proceeded to make prototypes to present to the team in working HTML CSS & JS View wire Frames & presentation

Design

Netbiscuits worked in 2-week sprints using agile methodology. The below links demonstrate my User interface design using Photoshop. Be sure to click through the pages of the PDFs so you can see the different states.

Front End Coding

After design sign off I worked on front End stories using responsive HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JS library’s. I would collaborate with backend and front-end architecture specialists to create engaging user experiences. I worked closely with Javascrpt programmers and gained knowledge of creating functions and using data to create data driven designs. I successfully passed an Advanced JavaScript course during this time and my learning is ongoing.
