Digital Health Compendium

The Digital Health Compendium had been designed as a print product for almost a decade by USAID's Africa Bureau. PRB was tasked with transitioning the compendium from a print product to a digital one.

I kickstarted the project by conducting initial user research, designing several wireframe iterations, and a style guide using existing examples to drive the design.

UX Research

During a kickoff meeting with the dHealth Compendium team, I lead discussions to answer rudimentary UX questions including target audience, key capabilities of the site, and intended goals with the digitization of this historically print product.

Low Fidelity Wireframing

With responses from the kickoff meeting as a guide, I first drafted some pen and paper wireframes which I then migrated into Sketch and InVision. After further revisions and discussions around functionality of the site with the client, these wireframes became part of the official RFP sent to developers.

UI Design

We opted not to do a full design in-house for this project, but I wanted to provide the design agency with a direction from which to launch their own designs. I started with a larger array of options (right) which I then narrowed down (below) after discussions and feedback from the clients.
