Bonzai is a powerful, yet simple check-in manager designed for events professionals.
It simplifies check-in for the organising team and also the attendee, reducing time and stress during that key first stage of your event.
I designed all aspects of Bonzai’s ecosystem namely the iOS app for iPhone and iPad, Mac app, Web app and Marketing site.
Minimum Viable Product
I consulted with all key stakeholders and development teams in order to help draw up the scope and plan the delivery of the project. We created a Minimum Viable Product for both the iOS and Mac app in order to draw learnings from real-life customers. With this we plan to iteratively build up product features.
Initially low-fidelity wireframes using pen and paper were used to quickly demonstrate layout and user workflow.
After various feedback stages, we progressed to medium and high fidelity prototypes to communicate the visual design, functionality and illustrate user interactions. This also allowed for usability testing of the product which helped to validate the design.
High-Fidelity Prototype (iOS for iPad App)
Note: the iOS App has since been slightly refreshed from this prototype to introduce iOS 11 styling such as large navigation bar titles.
Alongside the iOS and Mac app, I worked on improving Bonzai’s web application. I reviewed the existing system identifying areas of concern and set to improve the user experience by simplifying the user’s workflow for key tasks.
Alongside the UX design I also applied a UI refresh to ensure the application looked fantastic but also provided a clarity and consistency which helped reduce any possible user frustration.
