As Irista became more complex and collaborative, I explored a concept to introduce a notification system.
The main objectives were:
■ Surfacing key events people could miss - Because some jobs may take time to complete (like the upload), some actions may have been completed by other users (for example, other users could add new photos to a collaborative gallery), or users may need to initiate a task on a platform and complete it on a different platform (mobile to desktop);
■ Introducing and promoting new features - We wanted an organic way to present new releases and prompt people to use features that could be relevant for them but that they may have missed.
I led the overall design process through to the design of production-ready components and interactions.
More about this case study soon.
