Process

With the urgency to deliver an MVP swiftly, the project required rapid progression. Following the ideation phase, Research and Planning had to occur simultaneously. While this approach posed a risk of derailing the project, our iterative process during the Pilot phase mitigated any potential setbacks. The Tiger Team, comprised of four pivotal members— a product strategist, a program manager, a lead engineer, and myself serving as the UX and design lead— worked in tandem to drive the project forward effectively and efficiently.

DIYAI Project Process

User Flow

During the user journey, various AI implementations will be integrated. These implementations not only uphold the product's commitment to empowering users to create press releases independently, without the need for sales or editorial support, but also enhance their experience through features such as AI content extraction and moderation, AI recommendations, and AI analysis. Furthermore, the system will offer recommendations on the most suitable package for users based on factors including the content of the press release, user profile, and multifaceted behavioral and submission patterns derived from past interactions, leveraging machine learning insights.

The press release creation process within DIAYA is streamlined for user convenience. Users can initiate the process by simply uploading a document, after which DIAYA automatically extracts the document's content and populates the relevant fields. Users retain full control and can fine-tune the content as needed.

Wireframes

Before the design phase commenced, an extensive series of wireframes were meticulously crafted for user testing purposes. These wireframes underwent numerous iterations before arriving at a finalized version. The user testing process primarily revolved around interactive prototypes, all done in Figma, meticulously coordinated with a dedicated UX Researcher. This approach ensured comprehensive assessment and validation of the wireframes' functionality and usability, ultimately refining the product to meet user needs and expectations.
