Client Requirement

What do we expect from you?

The idea is for you to make assumptions to solve the exercise, you should include these assumptions when you are sending your solution.

Part of the evaluation will be on the assumptions you make.
Show us everything you can do, don’t hold anything back!

1. Use all the resources you think you need
2. Tell us what decisions you made and why
3. It’ll be sufficient for a low-fidelity version in PDF but a low-fidelity version in FIGMA will be better

Please propose a design to solve the following problem by adding a new feature to our app: Help our employees find their cars in the parking lot.

Problem to Solve

The client has over 15,000 employees, and all their cars are on our main campus. Employees have been “losing” their cars in the lot. They forgot which of the 5 giant parking lots they parked in and wandered around, clicking their door alarms to find their cars. The noise pollution at the end
of the day is terrible.

They already have a company application. They want to add a function in the home if it alters the layout


1. Couples often swap cars when driving to work.
2. What if the employee has more than one car she drives to work?
3. This feature should be prominent on the app–but the home screen
is already full.
4. How will you make it fit without removing something?
5. This is not a real app. In the exercise, we are just interested in the feature you can propose to solve the parking issue. Regarding the other capabilities of the app, you can make as many assumptions as you want (always send these assumptions to us)

You can define your User Persona and assume pain points


Employee / User from 18 to 55 years old or more.

Project Goals

Provide a solution based on geolocation to assist employees/users
in an easy, fast, and intuitive way to locate their cars in a large parking lot, avoiding the activation of the anti-theft alarm, delays, frustrations,
and setbacks in the search.

The challenge consisted of providing a solution to employees who lost their cars in the parking lot, which was very extensive, and each one had their cars in the main parking lot. The solution should have been based on geolocation, I had to take into consideration avoiding the noise of the car security alarms.

Design Process

  1. Briefing Session: (Problem to solve – UX Process)
  2. Market Research
  3. Mood Board
  4. User Flow
  5. Low Fidelity Wireframe

Briefing Session

When I receive documentation (Brief) I like to adapt it to common words
for a better understanding of what is needed by the customer. 
I prepare a basic Briefing with the entire process that I will implement to give a satisfactory solution to the problem.

Market Research

At the end of the Briefing, I begin the exploration in search of visual references that help me generate good ideas, this process is what I call market research. By doing this exploration, I was able to get valuable feedback that helped shape the proposed solution.

The following process was based on a selection of similar apps to get
an overview of what is on the market related to the idea I proposed.

User Flow

During the user flow process, I generated hypotheses around the idea
that the application can be used Offline and Online. I thought about the most common situations that could occur to the user when requesting 
the assistance of the app to find the Car.

a) What happens if the user loses internet connectivity?

b) Can the map work without the Internet?

c) Could the user record a video as Hansel and Gretel’s “Breadcrumb” return method?

d) Could the user take photos for reference of the environment where the vehicle is parked?


User Personas

Creating male user personas helped me in the design process
by understanding the need for speed and efficiency. By understanding those details, the app can be tailored to provide a seamless experience.

Key features could include real-time car tracking, a user-friendly interface, and customizable parking maps. Alerts and notifications could further enhance the user experience by guiding you directly to your vehicle.

In the case of the user personas, the female user helped me understand
the needs of travel experiences and the idea that planning prior to the search for the vehicle could be included, which would allow her to save parking space and provide easy instructions. follow for your vehicle.

The app’s interface can be intuitive, reflecting its penchant for fluid
and efficient navigation.

Low Fidelity Wireframe

Focusing on the Client’s Needs

To tackle the client’s challenge and optimize the available space within their application, I began by creating low-fidelity wireframes in Xcalidraw. Through an iterative process, I explored various screen layout options, ultimately arriving at the one I’m happy to present below.
