I conducted a guerrilla usability testing of my portfolio with 3 users. Though the number of participants was bit lower, I was able to get decent insight on the required design changes.
I wanted answers to the following questions:
- Can viewers do what they want to do when they first land in the website?
- Can viewers easily navigate the projects?
- Can viewers easily find my contact information?
Along with answers, I wanted to elicit design changes required to improve the user experience in these areas.
Users completed the following tasks:
- Visit http://riyadhsharif.com/ from a desktop/laptop.
- Spend the next 1-2 minutes doing whatever you want to do on the site.
- Find a project that is of interest to you and then open the project
- Once you are in the project page, spend 1-2 minutes to learn about the project
- Then go to another project that you would like to know about.
- Spend 1-2 minutes learning about that project.
- Find my contact information on the site and copy my email address.
Immediately after completing these tasks, users were requested to fill out an online survey at TypeForm:
Following are the raw user data:
