Step One: Conduct Interviews

I first conducted user interviews to get more perspectives on people's goals and pain points when ordering food for take-out or delivery. Here's a sample from Ryan's interview. The first voice you will hear is mine.

Step Two: Create User Personas

From the interviews, I created sample personas that represent different types of typical users of food ordering apps. ​

Step Three: Write User Stories

Next, in order to prioritize my design goals while ensuring an empathetic perspective, I distilled the user personas into user stories (scenarios or user cases).

As a young person ordering for a group, I want to have each person in my group place their own order in the cart so that I know their orders will be exactly what they wanted without me being a go-between.

As a food enthusiast, I want to navigate the entire menu with ease so that I know I have seen all the choices and found the best thing on the menu.
