Becoming a US citizen should be simple— and fun!




TEAM — KATE DEGMAN, ESTHER KIM, JULIE KIM



The US naturalization test can be a daunting task — it is costly, and it is a test based on strict memorization for both reading and verbal portions. For those who are of older age and with language barriers, this can prove to be especially difficult among their other worries. Keeping this audience in mind, Natio is a study app that is simple and personable. Illustrations and easy-to-follow study methods  help alleviate stress while increasing productivity and memory.








During our initial research phase, we invited student participants to use an existing study app on the market. 3 participants used the think-aloud method as they explored the app, while 3 others participated in card sorting to organize the architecture to their liking. This site map is representative of the app, and the red outlines show what we want to remove for our design.






Our new architecture is consolidated into four simple tabs, and we put greater emphasis on having a user profile to track results. To simulate the importance of the test, we separated it from the study methods. From here, my role was to design the overall functionality and UI of the test tab.
