We interviewed the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands, and conducted field research with Airvu, an early client of ours, in the Cayman Islands. Thanks to Skyward, Airvu is the first business to be approved for commercial unmanned aircraft operations in the Cayman Islands. They continue to use Skyward as their business rapidly expands.
Based on our research, we determined the primary users and their needs. From there I designed the information Architecture.

User flow diagram sample.
With the user flows validated, I moved into wireframes, defining the app’s framework and interaction model.
Geospatial mobile prototype for iOS. Abbreviated sign in – select operation.
Unmanned airspace rapid prototype for desktop.
Low-fidelity manual flight logging rapid prototypes to help communicate concepts to executive stakeholders.
Throughout the visual design process, I remained tightly integrated with the development teams, keeping focused on my current design sprint while remaining available to pair with them during their current development sprint.
