User Journeys

Developed user journeys for user segments based on whether they were a member and if they were registered with AARP.org. This journey helped to map out the number of pages and where customized or generic messages would appear before the user arrives to their account dashboard.

Mobile Degredation

The layout was designed with mobile considerations on top-of-mind. Complex menu elements, like internal tabbing, were designed into adaptive elements to maintain the simplicity of mobile browsing. Responsive stacking ensured that key elements stayed on the top of the templates.

Design

After the UX reorganization exercise, the entire experience was simplified even more. Tabs were consolidated and content blocks were collapsed by default to keep the most important account details front and center.

All designs followed ADA AA guidelines to ensure that AARP customers would be able to access the account management dashboard, especially for those with vision impairment.

Recommendation Cards

The dashboard features a dynamic card slot with stacks of actionable cards that provides helpful insights to the user to keep their account updated and get the most out of their AARP membership, including signing up for customized newsletter subscriptions.
