Designer - Myself (Eloise Hitchens)

UonConnect is a piece of UX design created to simulate how the process of establishing and maintaining connections by and with university students can be made easier so said students can make the most out of their university experience.

This design is of particular importance as it represents who I am and who I want to be as a designer. With every project I do and with every design I create it is always has been and will be my intention to help others and to impact their lives in a positive and meaningful way.

This inspiration behind this piece of work came from my desire to make the focus of my major project for my university degree to be about creating a piece of design with the intention of assisting others. This project was completed over a couple of months and as such the focus was made more specific to be assisting university students establish and maintain connections with other university students.

UonConnect will also serve as a visual reminder that more goes on behind the scenes during the creation of a design than anyone will ever know. The planning, researching, interviewing, user testing and feedback sessions are only but a few of the aspects of creating a piece of UX/UI design that have to be considered and integrated into the creative process.
