Quick Design Validatation
Due to the time constraint and scope of the project, I needed to quickly get feedback to validate my design decisions. From my “quick-and-dirty” test with my user, I was able to confirm some of the design choices in my paper prototype. However, it also allowed me to understand the following insights:
- The user assumed the list view is defaulted to cheapest to most expensive
- The user assumed that you could click on the “boxes represented individual parking spots” and you could “click to book”
- The confirmation screen should have detailed information on how many hours your spot has been reserved
The visual design is minimal with only one primary color and a few accent colors.
- The parking spot bubbles are given a more “pop of color” so the user can easily see the spots that were available
- The user has the flexibility to switch between the map and list view using the icon to the right on the title menu
- More prominence and weight is given to the font size for the price so users can easily distinguish price points
- The individual listing screen has a sticky bottom section that is fixed so the user can select quickly even as he/she scrolls
- The checkout process should be as simple as possible, allowing the user to clearly see the amount due and switch between their payment options, Apple Pay, add new, etc.
- Reservation confirmation screen had a big CTA to get them to go into their default phone map app so that they could proceed to their booked location with ease
