The worldwide pandemic Covid-19 came as a shock to everyone. Right here in Lagos, Nigeria the total lockdown was an activity we weren't aware of, panic was in the land. People lost their jobs, businesses started to loose money, starvation and poverty rate increased and so did the crime rate. There was panic in the land.
My team at Parallelscore started brainstorming ways to help ease the tension. The goal was to think up a FAST solution that was easy to implement and would be valuable to residents in Lagos.
After much deliberating we concluded on a web application. This application will simply allow users to view the heat map of coronavirus cases, the number of positive patients, the proximity of testing centers, and also a process to report suspected cases. This way users can see the statistics and be encouraged to stay indoors and also, take precautionary measures if they have to move around.
The team member that had the idea created a quick wireframe for the team to visually understand how the product can look like.
From the wireframe and features highlighted, I picked up the project and started to build on it. The feature was simple
Another goal was to make the interface simple, accessible, responsive, and intuitive as possible because users from different demographics and with different devices will be trying to access the site.
As I designed I created a quick style guide to document color and font styles within the project.
I designed for web first😅😏 highlighting the features and the best way to place information and then moved on to creating a responsive design for mobile.
I spent a couple of hours working on this and voila the project was ready.
The project was quick and was exciting to build. Well till next time, see you as we keep building products for the next billion users
