Author Discovery Search

Portfolio, Professional Work

Project overview

A startup looking to innovate how publishers discover new authors came to my team to help enhance the next iteration of their website.

They wanted to add a robust search for authors and manuscripts, plus a way for publishers to save and share the interesting results they found.

Wireframes

Because the site was a pro-bono project, we didn’t have a lot of time or budget for recommending changes. We needed something to convey an idea quickly, so the client could advocate for funding once we finalized the concept.

Creating lightweight PowerPoint wireframes that leveraged pre-built interaction design libraries from Power MockUp, rather than a robust interactive prototype in Axure, allowed me to share concepts with the client and iterate quickly.

Tools & methods:

  • PowerPoint wireframes
  • Search design
