Indivisible.org Sharables App
The goal of the project was to increase civic awareness and create discourse around congressional representation with a mobile phone app that allows people to find their representatives, see how their reps voted on proposed bills, and share this information on social media. The desired outcome was lots of folks sharing curated imagery and increasing social media engagement.
My contribution was to outline the user flow for both the intended audience and the content admin. I also created a user journey to map a person's likely path and think through the questions they may have while using the application. I wanted to give the team working on the app tools to create directional and supplemental content and features that would potentially create a desirable and easy-to-use application.
The content of the #CauseAScene advocates for antiracism and highlights where white supremacy has caused harm in all areas of the tech community, jobs, non-profits, etc. This content is powerful and uncomfortable for the intended audience. I proposed creating a web experience that presents this information in a predictable and uncomplicated fashion.
My contribution to the project was to help distill all of Kim's ideas and projects into one cohesive website experience and provide low fidelity wireframes (Desktop and Mobile) to start the conversation about content hierarchy and IA.
