Lessons Learnt

Throughout the project, I realized the importance of keeping the user at the center of the design process. Conducting thorough user research and understanding their needs, pain points, and preferences was crucial in creating a valuable and engaging experience. By empathizing with the target audience, I was able to tailor the app's features and interface to meet their specific requirements.

Adopting an iterative design process was essential in enhancing the City Scout app. By creating and testing wireframes and prototypes, I swiftly validated design concepts and incorporated valuable feedback from usability testing. This iterative approach empowered me to tailor the interface to better meet users' needs, resulting in a refined and user-friendly product.
