03 Conclusion

A relatively simple project, three drafts were produced in the early stage, and a draft was selected in the user survey. I then delivered the final draft to the Development Team review, fine-tuning the design details and overseeing the design restoration during the process. Sometimes the Development Team tends to be more cautious about the small functionality of the application, the designer has to filter and adjust accordingly.
