Can I Park Here?
was the concept conceived by a UX team at DESIGNATION
. The idea came about in response to their research which revealed that confusion with parking rules was a widespread problem for Chicago drivers.
Their solution was a mobile application which leverages device location services to pinpoint users exact GPS coordinates. These are then cross-checked against official city of Chicago data to determine the parking eligibility of their current location.
Additionally, users are able to check parking eligibility based on custom time ranges and view full parking schedules for a particular spot, as well as saving locations to their favourites list.
I worked on a team with two other UI Designers, a Creative Director and Project Manager. Over four weeks we adopted an agile workflow based on Google Ventures design sprint
. I collaborated closely with my team on overarching tasks during the discovery phase and then we applied the findings individually to create our own visual design solutions.
