Building a Resource Center

 

As the product designer for this project, I played a pivotal role in designing an innovative resource hub for the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). This platform was aimed at small-scale fisheries worldwide, connecting individuals and entrepreneurs to improve industry conditions and contribute to environmental sustainability. From inception to execution, my contribution helped bring success in supporting small-scale fisheries and fostering positive environmental change.

Introduction

 

The Environmental Defense Fund recognized the urgent need to empower and connect individuals and entrepreneurs involved in small-scale fisheries. This initiative aimed to provide a platform that would facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and the improvement of industry practices, ultimately contributing to the preservation of aquatic ecosystems.

Problem

 

In addition to stakeholder interviews, I was an integral part of the design process, from initial ideation to the production of high-resolution designs.

Stakeholder Interviews: Conducted insightful stakeholder interviews to understand the project's objectives and the unique needs of small-scale fisheries and their stakeholders.

Collaborative Design: Working closely with a team of designers, contributed to creating journey and content maps, ensuring a comprehensive and user-focused design approach.

Wireframe Designs: Crafted wireframe designs that laid the foundation for the platform's user interface and experience, focusing on user-friendliness and accessibility.

Client Interaction: Actively engaged with the Environmental Defense Fund, presenting design ideas and concepts and aligning the project with the client's vision.

High-Resolution Designs: As the project progressed, it transitioned from wireframes to high-resolution designs, refining and enhancing the platform's visual elements.
