Working closely together with Stuyvesant Cove Park management for six months, the team developed a forageable plant handbook and a map showcasing all the amenities and wonders available in the park.
The project’s main goal is to make edible plants in the park easier to learn more about. Extensions of the project include plant information signages, wayfinding signages, and QR codes to facilitate access to both handbook and map.
The team conducted site visits and interviews with park stewards and veteran volunteers; distilled research insights into archetypes, then personas; tested design iterations using Usability Hub (navigation and 5 second tests), then conducted moderating testing with users through Zoom interviews.
The project is hosted on Notion and Google Maps both as working prototypes to facilitate testing, and for members of the park community to contribute information to. The site will be launched in the summer of 2021, and can be viewed here.
