UX PATTERN LIBRARY
a collection of reusable design solutions
Seagate had variety of internal and external applications, but no common repository to enable consistent user experience. They asked me to advise on defining patterns that would help bring all products to the desired benchmark of consistency, along with the new brand language that was being designed.
what i did
I interviewed Developers, Designers (external agencies), QA, and Business Analysts - to derive a pattern of recurring challenges in terms of shareable assets and knowledge.
I also reviewed online Pattern Libraries like Yahoo, MailChimp to get a sense of consumable content and structure. I worked closely with Tangible (an agency specializing in UX) to generate content for complex UI patterns. In parallel, I generated early wireframes to consolidate the findings and conducted Usability tests with a dozen hand-picked users.
Finally, I created user interface designs and played an active role in developing the platform using Wordpress.
