FLUXX.IO


Project

The Problem. Fluxx is a comprehensive grants management platform. It’s a powerful product that serves some of the largest foundations in the world.

Fluxx wanted to create a SaaS model of the existing product in order to serve the needs of smaller foundations, that require less customization. 

 

My Role:

  • Project Lead
  • Stakeholder interviews and workshop facilitation.
  • User Research (Recruitment, Scheduling, Discussion Guide, Conducting interviews)
  • Persona
  • User Stories
  • Sketch-boarding to consolidate our knowledge and share direction with the client
  • User Flows
  • Screen Design
  • On-boarding Recommendations
  • Final deliverable: Interactive Prototype

Why I’m excited about this project: 

The world of grants management was completely new to me, so this was an excellent opportunity to get immersed in a new sector from scratch. I enjoyed being able to facilitate and found that using sketchboarding was a great way to consolidate knowledge within the team and client. The project required a re-framing for the client for both the client and ourselves midway through, it was satisfying to be able to shift our thinking appropriately and be able to communicate this clearly with our interactive prototype. Needless to say, helping foundations to fund great work and build better relationships with their grantees was extremely rewarding.
