INDUSTRIAL CHEMISTRY WEB APPLICATION 

Global Life Sciences Publisher

CHALLENGE
Industrial chemists working inside of large companies need a quick way to find and compare the many complex properties of substances. No such application exeisted, and I was tasked to lead the design of this new digital product.

SOLUTION
I designed an Saas web application that allows chemists to quickly arrive at a set of substance results by interacting with various property charts, taxonomy or a powerful, specialized search engine. The process for this project included:

User Research           Protoytyping
IA / Wireframe           Visual Design
Userflow                      Style Guide

DISCOVERY WORKSHOPS

Discovery workshops were held with exec's and SME’s, defining users, content, data, and objectives of the proposed system. The conclusion of this phase included the presention of a discovery research report.

USER PERSONAS

Out of the workshops we developed fictious representations of our users and key tasks.

SKETCHING

Through a series of sketches we presented three different directions in which to structure the general architecture and flow.

Businesses committed to a socially responsible and brighter future are brought into the Chase Brighter Network.

Consumers are rewarded for shopping at these businesses with low interest rates and double/triple reward points.

USER PATHWAY PROTOTYPING

The design vision was as a single-page application, so the user didn't need navigate down a hierarchy 4 or 5 levels deep. The user asks for information, and it appears without leaving the intial screen. Below is a low-fidelity flow created in After Effects. Here is a high-fidelity flow (use keyboard arrows to move forward/back)

VISUAL DESIGN

After wireframes were established, we transitioned to visual design – defining everything from the interaction of highly complex charts to overall look and feel of the system.

Businesses committed to a socially responsible and brighter future are brought into the Chase Brighter Network.

Consumers are rewarded for shopping at these businesses with low interest rates and double/triple reward points.

CLICKABLE PROTOTYPES

Clickable Invision prototypes of the three major chemical discovery flows were created: 

Protoype 1: Discover chemicals via property charts

Protoype 2: Discover chemicals via taxonomy 

Protoype 3: Discover chemicals via search

 

FRONT-END PROTOTYPE
A front-end prototype was created to define key interactions and primary workflows flows.
