Discovery Maldives is a web portal dedicated to the wonders of Maldives. The website was designed to provide a search tool for divers who want to discover the most interesting dive sites on the area. The information was compiled by experienced divers and marine biologists.

Besides being a guide for the most interesting places in the area, it was used to sensitize tourists on environmental issues of Maldivian fauna and flora.

The main actions was:

– Definition of product goals and time schedule;
– Benchmark competitors and similar tools;
– Collection of data from stakeholder;
– Definition of personas and scenarios;
– Content Strategy
– Sitemap and Navigation paths development;
– Wireframes creation;
– Mockups design.

The result was a flexible, dynamic website with a powerful “search dive” tool.

Benchmark phase. I did a research phase to identify tools similar to those defined with stakeholders.
