Question Areas

When asking questions to users, it's extremely important to find balance between understanding pain points as well as getting familiar with the patterns and thoughts from general answers.

"

How imperative is the efficiency and sustainability that relates to virus software products?

"

Are there any constraints and frustrations that comes with scanning viruses?

"

What purpose does it serve users by running an anti-virus software that relates to maximizing time & energy?

Lean UX Canvas

Using the Lean UX Canvas chart by Jeff Gothelf, this helped get a rundown for laying out the vision for Maater and breaking everything down for building a malware/anti-virus software.

Preliminary Research

From here, I decided to combine question areas and lean UX canvas as a guide and combine that with the framework for Jobs to be Done to break down the situation, motivation, and outcome for Maater.

Situation - Finding a software to block viruses,
Motivation - Will help protect my devices and identify spammers,
Outcome - So I could enjoy the privacy of a fast and efficient experience.

Competitive Analysis

In order to grasp that challenge ahead, it was a good idea to see other anti-virus competitors, see what worked well for them in what Maater can extract from those respective companies, and ultimately turn them into Maater users.

Style Guide

Here are the color palettes and symbols I have used in designing Maater's theme.

For the color's, orange and green provided a mood that recognizes the synergy that takes place for users to be keen on providing attention to. These colors represent the overall brand, look, and feel to protect your info and devices from slowing down.

And of course, I didn't want to forget adding the typography, buttons, and symbols.
