As Google News grows as a platform and Google Search aims towards empowering content creators, the two teams try carving a space for hyper-local citizen journalism.
I explored and understood the design needs of the two teams and the technical capabilities of STAMP. Lead multiple design sprints, and workshops. Storyboarded, mocked up and documented specifications for handoff.
We ran a successful pilot in select locations which helped both Google Search and News to understand the needs of their users and plot and validate their strategies moving forward.
