Tangible UX was approached by the startup PacerPro to create an new and modern front end to an existing public tool for lawyers researching Federal and District level cases. The team wanted to provide extra features and value to lawyers already familiar with the PACR searchable legal database.
Simplifying the Interactions
Working closely with the Founder, we fleshed out the main user interactions for each key feature—the search process, the document saving and collecting process, viewing PDF documents and abstracts and how to visualize activity across an ongoing case—for example, visualizing lawyer’s motions and judge’s rulings—and developed a simple visual language.
Letting the Visual Design Follow the Function
In the second engagement we worked iteratively with the Founder and VP of Product and explored a variety of ways to visualize activity of a case, so that a person looking at a case docket might get a sense of what had been happening since their last visit. We expanded the visual language and color palette from the first release to include ways to differentiate blocks of information, overlay panels, an activity stream and data visualization.
