We worked on the topic of designing a website and wireframes during few lectures.
There are few key points to keep in mind when designing a successful website, 1stwebdesigner.com (2016):
- Goals for your website.
- Target audience.
- CTA (What should visitors to do once they land on your site).
- Navigation Figure out how you will get your readers to easily navigate through your site in order for them to complete your call-to-action
- Keywords Create a list of keywords that you will use throughout your site in order to move your web pages up the ranks of search engines like Google, Bing, etc.
Our task was to design a healthcare app and we started this process by developing a persona. Our chosen persona was a young woman who had been seriously injured while mountain climbing. She was brought to a hospital and put in an induced coma for 4 weeks and then spent 2 weeks in rehab. The goal of the app was to monitor her moods, her sleep pattern and remind to take medicine during her recovery at home.
