Text mining and research app
Codercats – is a web-based textual analysis app. It aims to provide the most sought after text analytics to facilitate academic research. The main audience is students and researchers working in academia and public sector.
First, we conducted user research and created user profiles based on this results. We then developed a design system and created a logo. In addition, we designed and launched the project’s website. The most important part was creating an interactive prototype of the app in Figma.
A user persona is a fictional but realistic representation of a typical user. It allows you to build empathy and deepen an understanding of the target audience and user’s needs.
Assuming the target audience, the research was focused on students and young academics and included interviews and an online survey.
Using the results of the user research, user personas of three typical users were created. In addition, the study allowed for further clarification of user needs and expectations.
The design system focused on clarifying fonts and colours that would be used in the app.
The project needed a very catching and dynamic logo that would speak to its users.
The solution was to shape the first letter as a cat and use two colours that would add a dynamic touch.
