Project #85354 - USER RESEARCH

Design Challenge

Design a mobile application that creates a music experience for users while working out.

Consider ways in which a novel system can use music to help users enhance,

track or inspire their performance.

To address this challenge, you will conduct a user-centered design process. Your first step will be to do some design

research so that you can find out about user needs and the context. You may already have some ideas for a product;

however, keep in mind that you must first have a good understanding of the actual needs and goals people have before going too far forward with specific solutions.
