The Center for Preventive Action at the Council on Foreign Relations had recently published its annual survey assessing the likelihood of specific global conflicts. They needed a tool that could both map the conflicts as well as connect those conflicts to deeper thinking from their experts. In addition, users needed to be able to filter by priority index. The final deliverables were Photoshop files and interaction documentation to be passed to the client’s developers.
In this project I brainstormed both internally and with the client to establish user flows, wireframes, and a visual system using their current branding and styles. This client was ideal because of their level of understanding, richness of content, and passion for good work—the final product was well received and led to more projects. If I could have changed anything about this engagement, I would have (as usual) lengthened the timeline and made it possible to work closely with the developers instead of just handing over files.
