Fibonacci Dashboard - 2014, 2017

Fibonacci Dashboard

“Fibonacci-style” Quicklinks assigns the most-viewed user screens to the largest buttons. The system tracks and automatically assigns the buttons unless this option is unchecked. This allows the most visited screens to be quickly accessed, rather than having to navigate to the screen. This was an idea I first conceived at Thomson Reuters when I was researching "tiles," and discussing tiles technically with the Head of Engineering. The TR head developer loved the Fibonacci concept—said it was very doable, and little known to me—pushed it. My TR boss wasn't so happy with it, this wasn't in the roadmap, and I shouldn't be stepping out of my silo to discuss such ideas with Dev. My boss at eFlex, however, loved it (though the head dev didn't really want to go there).

A Prescribed, Incremental Splash Screen Evolution - 2016-2019

UX Design must look at a task holistically, high-level, long-term, and incrementally.

That is, sometimes a "redesign" is more than getting from here to there. UX Design must also understand not just the user's perspective, but all the balls in play as well. What are the current/potential users needing? asking for? What are the business requirements (and why)? What are the development capabilities? What would it take to leap beyond capabilities? requirements? needs? That should layout a UX designer's high-level roadmap.

This shows the increments to take the dashboard splash screen from there to here with all the cited considerations, to work in a natural developmental flow without huge disruptions to process or production.
