Communication remains a pain point for K-12 education. With Signal Kit, we wanted to take a thoughtful and human-focused approach harnessing the latest advancements in automation and translation.
We sat down with real people, researched trends, reviewed current offerings and distilled our findings into some initial assumptions and personas. Most problems stemmed from the patchwork of products used across each district. Admins no longer had oversight while parents and students were left trying to keep up with the ever-changing list of apps and lines of communication.
Taking a lean approach, we iterated through lo-fi designs, incorporating check-ins with real users along the way. As the product came together, we built a flexible design system to carry into the visual design.
Entering the market, Signal Kit was very well received. As with all products, every day we continue to learn, adapt and push to innovate.
