II. Requirements Analysis
Our team members generated 5 need statements in order to solve Izzie's difficulties in award searching, and then brainstormed all big ideas.
Upper: Need statements (left) and prioritization grid (right).
Bottom: Generating some Big ideas in studio.
I sketched all these above to re-visualize our big ideas.
The team and I further rearranged all the big ideas and vote for the most feasible and impactful solution in the prioritization grid.

Based on this new idea, my team and I then produced a new scenario map for Izzie.
Thus, the new experience for Izzie is like this:
