Web App & Mobile App Design iOS  Android  Windows

• Umpqua is a bank based in downtown Portland, OR. • Conforming to the rigid structure and the usual banking conventions is not Umpqua. • Umpqua’s business goals present our digital agency with a unique creative opportunity. • We featured Umpqua’s personality and whimsy, while bringing a better banking experience to Umpqua users’ desktop and mobile devices (i.e., iOS, Android, Windows). • We designed an app that even the single parent on a budget and the booming businessman managing multiple accounts can both enjoy.

• We use our mobile devices more frequently to access online banking today, than ever before. • Still, banks keep skimping on mobile banking features. • Simple tasks performed often are unnecessarily complex. • How can we simplify and streamline these standard processes?

• Skip the unnatural banking system jargon. • Speak the language of your users. • Streamline and automatize simple processes. • Offer useful and relevant information. • Orient users with clear feedback while they’re on-the-go.

It’s great to get direct feedback from users to see where we hit the mark and where we have more room for improvement (i.e., system performance reliability).

• Illinois has the 3rd largest number of youth per capita in foster care. Without support the odds are against them. • 25% higher high school drop out rates • 50% higher special education placement rates • 60% fewer college enrollment rates • 70% higher violent crime arrests • Online resources dedicated to supporting youth following foster care system emancipation are very limited. • The Foster Care Alumni of America (IL-FCAA) website is under construction • The Struggling Youth Equals Successful Adults (SYESA) website requires login. • The Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) website is outdated and inaccessible • Our studies uncovered a jarring disconnect between the perceived effectiveness and the actual effectiveness of current online support systems based on point-of-view.

Data Gathered in contextual inquiry

Data Interpreted from contextual inquiries & interviews

• Using contextual inquiries and interviews data, we developed a twenty-six-question online survey of participants currently or previously involved in the foster care system (between 18-24 years old) • Survey results confirmed dissatisfaction and frustration with the current online support system • Most users reported foraging for information directly from case managers or web surfing • Most users (67%) reported only “sometimes” trusting the online support systems’ content

• Build awareness and demonstrate support from trusted mutual connections by leveraging social media networks • Most users (67%) reported only “sometimes” trusting the online support systems’ content • All users reported prevalent use (daily visit to site) of social media (all indicated Facebook) • Employ participatory design meet users needs directly • Most users reported foraging for information directly from case managers or web surfing • Use salient access points with high signal-to-noise ratios • Most users reported foraging for information directly from case managers or web surfing • Offer reliable online resources to instill trust in users • Most users (67%) reported only “sometimes” trusting the online support systems’ content

• Explore the effectiveness of social media on job search performance • Most users reported foraging for information directly from case managers or web surfing • Most users (67%) reported only “sometimes” trusting the online support systems’ content • All users reported prevalent use (daily visit to site) of social media (all indicated Facebook) • Explore A-B testing to determine effectiveness of online resources in helping users beat the odds (i.e., crime and education) • Explore focus groups to identify necessary features integral to the success of a single online resource website
