Squareknot is a web application that allows users to create interactive, branching, step-by-step guides. My role as lead designer was to think about the way users interact with the product in order to make the branching process easy to understand, as well as encourage them to create projects and interact with others.
I worked on a lot of interactive prototyping as well as different iterations of how the project interface worked. When I started, the projects were set up like a slideshow and moved forward horizontally through clicking. After a lot of iterations, I designed a new interface that scrolled vertically and that made selecting branches easier and more accessible. I also designed the full search experience, as well as improving the user's workshop and following feature.
