For the first time in my program, I was able to spend six months on a single project, and somehow, it still didn't feel like enough time. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the opportunity to sink my teeth into Huggie Buddies, and I loved the experience as a whole.
If I had more time, I would conduct research with more participants, test the app with the physical bear, and further refine our visual design and branding. However, the pace at which we had to work was also a blessing. The tight deadlines made fixating on details unfeasible and made us keep moving forward. Since our sponsor was unfamiliar with UX and the design process, I learned how to communicate with a client, keep them updated on my work, and present deliverables. However, my team (Group Hug) was by far the best part of this project, and I am incredibly grateful for my teammates.
