MatchDog: UX process

  • Problem: Finding the perfect rescue dog can be overwhelming. Traditional adoption methods often lack efficient matching processes.

  • Solution: This UX case study explores the design of a mobile app and companion administrative dashboard, to streamline the dog adoption process for a diverse range of prospective owners and rescue centers.

  • Approach: Leveraging existing user research, this project focuses on crafting an interaction design that fosters a seamless and successful matching experience for dog owners.



To get a sense of the diversity of user needs, I started by building a library of user stories, drawing from existing research




By distilling the user stories, I identified the platform goals and priorities necessary to fulfill the business and user requirements




To build intuitive and efficient navigation toward prioritized user goals, I structured how information would appear on the app and administrative dashboard





Furthermore, user flows were made, identifying the screens necessary to carry out key actions. Gamification was added for increased engagement




Once the screens were identified, I made quick wireframes to guide the final build




Next steps:

  1. Build clickable prototype with iOS design library + MatchDog branding

  2. Usability testing
