Team JLR – getting arty!

Another week down! We are a third of the way through our project – eek!

week4
Craig and Sara brainstorming this weeks innovation

This week we’ve spent the majority of our time planning  the design of our application with the help of our fabulous design mentors; in an agile way of course! From empathy maps and ‘as is’ diagrams to impact vs feasibly charts, we’ve been getting right down into the startup way of thinking.

As a result we’ve created two personas; meet Keith our delivery driver; and Felix our consumer!

From these personas we’ve established a ‘day in the life’ storyboard for each, which we’ve used to determine the key features we are going to include in our application. From this we have drawn up a detailed list of features, functions and requirements to present to our client.

En-route to a client meeting!

Give us a bone and we’ll run with it! We’ve also designed wireframes for our application. These are quick mock ups of the final product in black and white, just to give a visual idea of the layout. We’ve even managed to source a model car in order to do a practical demonstration at the European Expo!

week4.2
Craig and Sara play with Herb (our car!)

It’s not all work and no fun (despite work actually being pretty fun!) – we spent Friday night throwing some shapes on the dance floor!

We’ve had the lovely experience of enjoying Hurfest – IBM annual summer party! In the burning sunshine, cider in one hand, croquet mallet in the other, we had a blissful Thursday afternoon.

That’s all for now dearest readers. Until next week!
