Mobile User Interface Design
An experimental iOS mobile application to enable customers to print from a smartphone to a Xerox multifunction office device.
Xerox did not have an easy way to send documents from a mobile phone to a printer within their existing infrastructure. The research group was asked to explore probable technology solutions.
I worked with the cross-functional project team to define the target users, use cases and workflows that the application needed to support. I came up with a basic workflow, sketched the screens, produced high-fidelity wireframes; then worked closely with the developers as they implemented a working prototype.
The clear user interface ensured that the experimental prototype was well-received and understood by the business groups. The underlying technology and parts of the UI eventually became part of Xerox’s mobile printing application strategy.
After doing some basic requirements definition, I sketched out all of the major screens for the initial concept using pencil and a paper mobile phone template. I shared the sketches with the team and would modify them on the fly using yellow sticky notes. It was a quick and easy way to move the design forward.
Mobile Print Early Sketches
After the team agreed on the inteface sketches, I created a high fidelity wireframes using MockApp, a PowerPoint file that included all the basic iPhone screens and widgets.
