Grad school journey map

Follow my path through grad school (or rather, my progress through the HCIM program so far and my vision for the coming months)!

Graduate student journey map

A journey map is a visual look at an experience from an individual user’s perspective of his or her relationship with a product or service over time. Plotting this journey helps organizations or companies to better understand how they can improve their relationship with a user or customer at various stages of the process. Typically a journey map includes a persona (main character), pain points, timeline, emotion, touch points and channels.

I added some flair to the journey map by incorporating some illustrations to give it a look that’s more…”me.” Most of the illustrations I used are remixed graphics from freepik.com. I found illustrations that matched my design style and customized them to better match my look, my dog and the University of Maryland campus:
