Intuit Design Challenge
Batman is a crime-fighting superhero looking to efficiently capture bad guys. However, fighting crime in real time is a difficult mission for superheroes like Batman.
Design a mobile app that allows Batman to find another superhero to help him capture the Joker.

Understanding the User & Context
Insights from Early Sketches
1). Based on the previous research & insights, effective communication
is a high priority for features in the app.
2). This communication has to be updated in real time and has to be
easy to access- given the context of having to be used in battle.
3). A place to keep record is crucial- for other superheroes who can
learn from each other.
After exploration of interaction flows between the different ideas, I dived into the more detailed aspects of the wireframes. Some important design decisions I made in this step, was focusing on how the style of the app could bring accessibility to the superheroes that would be using it. What could make the app experience simple to use, given the various time constraints that a use case scenario like a battle would bring?
Given this was the first time I was doing a full design project with such as tight time constraint, I tried to go through as many steps of the design process as possible.
I think I need more revisions after additional user testing and feedback on the current solutions I have. Another key feature I would develop more if I had more time, would be to design a separate user flow of the administrative view, such as the stakeholders with the police department.
Although the short time constraint was stressful, I learned a lot about how to prioritize and make a successful design, given the different needs of the problem space. This unique scope of the problem was also fun to work in!
