Task: Determine the usability of Goodreads.com and provide a redesign with the necessary changes. 

Factors to Analyze: 

  • Overall site layout & organization



  • Brighten it up, it’s kinda dull

  • Make it easier to find 2019 lists

  • Add a pop of red to help with monotony of the website. “It feels like a scam website.”

  • The book case is really low resolution. “It looks like they took a jpeg of a bookcase and just placed it there.”

  • Get rid of the Quotes section, it wasn't even noticed 

  • Equal spacing on the bottom

Prototyping Tool: JustInMind
