COLLEGE SALARY REPORT

If you’re thinking about asking for a raise, read this first: PayScale’s new “Raise Anatomy” report helps employees who are asking for an increase make all the right moves, moves that – based on our research – make you more likely to land the raise you want. The report also helps employers ensure that they’re making fair, equitable pay adjustments across their organization.

Overview

PayScale’s salary-report Salary Report helps you research colleges, majors and careers based on how much salary you could earn by the time you reach mid-career if you attend a specific salary.

Challenge

Redesign the current salary report as a mobile application to evolve the current usage of the page, while introducing new design elements, interaction, and branding.

Salary Report

First Glance

The content strategy team created a comprehensive transcript that contained lots of data heavy information, areas for illustrations and interactive elements.

Main Experience

Salary Report allows consumer based users to understand which types of salary degrees have a higher salary payoff and why. We also have a variety of data that helps users understand their industry a bit more, and the tyoe if job placement they can expect by attending one of the many schools featured in the yearly report.

Landing Page

The landing page appears to have some updated styling to match our newly redesigned PayScale website, but still has a few outdated design concepts. There are a few interesting options we can take.

Strategic & Visual Design

I think there is a lot of room in creating a more functional landing page that allows users to digest what this tool is intended for, and why they should be using it more often. Currently, the page does not help people minimize confusion on this page.

Wireframes

This project also a very fast turn around, with only a week for research, questioning, and then straight to the whiteboard.

Prototyping

Using Adobe XD I produced an interactive prototype to walk through the new proposed concept in a mobile design approach.

Focus Areas

Key Factors after discussing with the team was to ensure there is a search function, and drop down items, and deep links for SEO.

Search functionality was going to be one of the main components we agreed on making a focal point in the design which translates into all viewports.

Desktop Wireframes

Starting with a mobile first approach helped me understand some of the core needs and content sections for the rest of the buildout into the desktop viewport.

HiFi Design

Main page design with all the elements signed off from all the teams. Once the core elements and visual design was explored I was able to lock in the overall look & feel throughout the page, iconography, and brand experience.
