Iterations are the path to success
In order to launch the product on time, and not risk essential elements like digital security, The portal was divided into 3 stages, that would be launched progressively.
Our first stage, a self-education portal. A simple magazine type of website that curates content related to digital hygiene and safety. The second stage would integrate, the individuals’ educations. Organized and guided education programs that if approved the user will be able to get a CyberSTAR certificate for free or to pay to a local university to validate the course and give them an official degree title.
The wireframes were essential to test the site architecture of our first version.
I created directly a high-fidelity prototype, that was tested by the team and a small group of potential users.
I used the logo as a category split in order to solidify the asterisk as the Universal Cyberstar symbol.
Inspired by hospital navigation, I designed a color path web architecture, in which the user will always be aware of the general topic they are reading about.
