ScottYU is an iOS app that helps improve people’s experience when visiting York University’s Scott Library. Through user feedback, we have determined the main issues faced by visitors, and designed the app to address them. User testing allowed us to ensure functionality for all ages.
Observing Scott Library allowed us to determine the kinds of people who used the library, as well as the main issues people regularly encountered.
- WHAT (APP IDENTITY) - Help students and staff plan ahead by reserving a seat and/or observe the library floor plan.
- WHY (OBSERVATION) - With a highly populated university, students and staff should have the ability to book study rooms in advance.
- HOW (PROPOSITION) - A visual layout of the library displaying the busy, reserved and available seats for each floor.
- WHOM (USER) - Primary users are university students as well as York University's staff.
Extremely rough layout. At this point we still needed to map all 5 floors of Scott Library.
Started to think more of the colour palette while also trying to create an easy to use interface suitable for all ages (students and faculty/staff).
Making changes with the typography keeping in mind its readability and legibility.
