Journey Maps

A journey map is a visualization of the process that a person goes through in order to accomplish a goal. 

Conducting the research to create a journey map can help identify points of friction, usability issues, missing features and find unexpected opportunities.

The journey map I did for Terlato helped identify issues around the checkout process as well as opportunities to create more loyalty via a Vintners Credit program that was initiated to reward repeat customers.

User Personas

Personas are a great way to see if your design/branding strategy is matching what your users need. and A journey map is a visualization of the process that a person goes through in order to accomplish a goal.

For Terlato Wines, I created a user persona based on interviews of stakeholders and customers.

After reviewing the interviews and website analytics data, I had a better understanding of what an ideal customer looks like — beyond basic demographic data to include goals, lifestyle and needs.

User Flows

User flows or flowcharts, as they are sometimes called, are diagrams that display the complete path a user takes when using a product.

The user flow lays out the user’s movement through the product, mapping out each and every step the user takes—from entry point right through to the final interaction.

Here I mapped out the user flow for different actions users would take on this financial services app.
