Heat map testing

In the process of updating the app, we moved forward with having a floating action button (FAB) to allow users to quickly appreciate someone–the main feature of the platform. We had a debate on whether to use a star (Marketings preferred icon for resembling appreciation) or a trophy. The trophy ended up out-performing the star with 9/10 users going for the trophy vs. 1/10 going for the star FAB.

Updating the app

OC Tanner was in the midst of a brand refresh and wanted to translate its new visual identity to our products. One of those included refreshing the iOS and Android apps. Along the way, I made several experience changes by using existing iOS patterns to help us be more agile in the future, I also applied a lot of our existing design system elements so that cross-app patterns existed, so if a user switched between the two they wouldn’t be jarred by the difference of how to perform similar tasks.
