Tribune Technology Online Classified Entry Prototype

I was asked to redesign the online classified entry interface to help reduce user confusion while not making any drastic changes that would require too much back-end coding. With that requirement in place, I focused on clarifying the progress indicator to help the user have a better sense of where she was in the process.

The redesigned progress indicator shows both the overall progress and each sub-step into one element. This lets users quickly determine about how long each main step will take to complete.

The wireframes were done in HTML using a number of pre-made CSS and Javascript elements, letting the product manager and others interact with the application design very early in the process.
