I successfully completed my first design project as an intern and handed over my prototype files to the developer. Everyone was satisfied with my results. The development was finished after I left the company so unfortunately I do not have any data.
I learned about conducting my own design reviews with the stakeholders and the UX team. The key stakeholders were the Software Trainer Product Manager, the Lead Developer, and the QA Lead. I prepared the meeting agenda, set actionable goals, prepared the questions I had for the stakeholders and made sure I came out of the meeting with next steps.
I relied on internal research so my stakeholders were my subject matter experts and were available to answer all my questions.
My design skills improved significantly due to my pair design sessions with my senior designer Anik, such as wireframing, grouping and naming elements, and designing components.
