WHO ARE THEY?

Anonymous Good is an online tribe where anyone can help make the world a better place.

People post and comment on each other's everyday acts of Good, and Anonymous Good helps transform them into Global Acts of Change by getting these acts sponsored to fund amazing initiatives (planting trees, feeding people, digging wells and helping slaves to freedom)

THE GOAL

The Anonymous Good Website has a ton of great content, but it is slow to load and post. It was designed as a website, but Anonymous Good wants to create a dedicated app to focus the website's features into an easier to use format.

OUR PROCESS

We were able to interview Peggy, who explained the story behind Anonymous Good and shared her vision of a sleek, easy to use app that could scale to handle increases in traffic and future function updates.

Chris listed out the key steps for the team to tackle:

  • Personas
  • User Scenarios
  • User Flows and Task Analysis
  • Features and Functions list
  • Design studio (for sketching)

Larry and Chris brainstormed 2 personas, Patrick and Jessica, as candidates who would use Anonymous Good, which led to understanding what would be most important to show on the homepage and the buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Meanwhile, Katie went to work on finding what app building technology would be the best fit for our needs, and created several quick prototypes. Mike set up the server and started to build the backend application to run the app.

Chris then started to design the wireframes, while Katie and Mike worked together to make sure the app building software was compatible with Mike's architecture. Larry worked with the Mashery Evangelist on understanding the Mashery API network. After seeing all the different API options, Larry suggested USAToday, so that the app would be able to pull in news stories that highlight acts of good from around the world.

FUTURE STEPS

We're excited to showcase our work to Peggy and the Anonymous Good crew, so that they can take this foundation of work and continue to build upon it. We're honored to have helped them on their way to finishing their app that matches their audacious goal of changing the world through everyday acts of Good.
