Mini Maravillas is a Spanish immersion home daycare opening in January 2019.
Time Frame: 1 month Team: Maria Gomez, Mini Maravillas Founder
My Main Role: UX/UI Designer
My Additional Roles: Project Manager, Content Creator
Tools: Excel, Screenflow and Brandcast
The founder was most concerned with building a customer base for her new business. Additionally, her limited budget prevented her from hiring a developer.
A responsive website in English and Spanish that attracts families and provides basic information they need about Mini Maravillas's services. Without a developer, I took to Brandcast design studio to form my custom design and launch the site.

Competitive Analysis: I analyzed the pages of four top-reviewed San Francisco based language immersion daycares to identify patterns in the content and features provided and their organization.
Card Sort: A card sorting exercise with 5 participants and a quantitative analysis helped me understand what groupings of content made sense to most people and what content/features weren't necessary.
Information Architecture: I readjusted the cards according to the quantitative analysis forming the information architecture of Mini Maravilla's platform.
Stakeholder Meeting: The founder and I reviewed the information architecture and eliminated information and services she couldn't yet provide as a new business. This helped me narrow down the IA.
Sitemap: I then used Brandcast design studio to create the sitemap that provided me with a functional overview of the site.
Wireframe Sketches: With the information architecture and sitemap set, I sketched various wireframes to visualize the IA.
Design: I developed the sketches further on Brandcast to finalize my design and launch the site.
