My Open Hockey Mobile App
Help to solve ice hockey players frustrations around showing up to the hockey rink to play open hockey only to find there are not enough goalies or players to play a proper game. Open hockey is a type of informal hockey game offered by most arenas where anyone is welcome to play, and players show up at the rink to sign up, pay and play.
This project marries my two passions: design and playing ice hockey. User interviews based on an initial problem statement led to a pivot in focus which led to a revised problem statement around which I synthesized the interview data using affinity mapping. Market research and a feature prioritization based on business and user goals helped refine the features. User-based card sorting helped support the information architecture of the digital experience. I applied the test, learn, iterate cycle with interactive prorotypes to user test and iterate on designs, and finally high fidelity designs.

I created a refined prototype and presentation to be proposed to local hockey rink representatives in hopes of a potential partnership.
