CONCLUSION + REFLECTIONS
1. What I'd do differently next time: Looking back on this project, if I had more time, I would like to explore more ways to improve and increase pet shelter engagements. Potentially have a feature that allows user’s to share their own adoption posts. Conduct additional user surveys whenever a pet owner has completed an adoption application. As well as, better adhering to WCAG standards for accessibility.
2. Challenges I've faced: Working on this project has been challenging but also very rewarding. Coming into this project, I had to make some design compromises. Part of being in a group project is to acknowledge and listen to everybody's ideas. Sometimes my partner and I had clashing design ideas but in the end we presented our ideas and reasoning and compromised together.
3. What I've learned. This project has taught me the important of remembering that with every design iterations, the design itself should still align with the user needs. It has also taught me the important of work accountability, as this was a group project, with no deliverables being marked for grades, this was basically up to us to complete whenever we liked. Luckily, we were both on the same page and aligned ourselves to work through the project in a sprint fashion.
