KNVB Trainer’s Assist
KNVB is the Dutch national football association with more than 1.2 million members and over 500 employees. In 2015, the KNVB established a partnership with Momkai to redesign their top three websites, knvb.nl, onsoranje.nl and voetbal.nl. In early 2017, they requested a new feature to be added to the KNVB website: a platform where football trainers can find resources that help them train their students.
This name of this platform is KNVB Trainersassist. It empowers football trainers nationwide to perfect their training plans. Next to pre-made training exercises, full workouts and multi-weekly plans, this platform provides trainers to create and share their personal training plans, monitor their team’s news and see upcoming matches.
In this project I assisted the Senior UX designer with the functional design of the platform. We mapped out the features the platform needed to have, and translated these into a logical structure and design. We used Adobe XD to create so-called wireframes to explore layouts and visually communicate our ideas about how the functionality and structure of the platform should be.
This was a iterative process, where we came up with new ideas on what would be the optimal design. An interactive prototype was designed which was used in a series of usability tests where a focus group was asked to perform a number of tasks. I observed the users’ behaviour and comments and took notes. With the insights gathered during this evaluation, the wireframes were re-designed delivered to the design & development teams.
This internship was rewarded with an ‘Excellence’ or 10.0 by the TU/e assessors. I look back on a succesful internship at a very friendly and professional company. In this internship I gained a lot of practical experience in interaction design: I learnt to apply methodology and frameworks. I became experienced with tools that facilitate rapid digital prototyping (Adobe XD, Figma, InVision), and evaluated prototypes in focus groups.
The six months spent at the internship allowed me to grow in my professional skills daily: I became more efficient in communication and information-sharing, and learnt about the importance of punctuality and reliability. The interaction design methodologies learnt- and attitude gained during this internship have helped me prepare for a professional career as interaction designer.
