Organizations often need help zooming out to see the big picture of the user journey. This was particularly important for the NFL Players Association, who provide support and resources for professional football players at every stage of their careers and beyond retirement. As part of the effort to redesign, NFLPA partnered with Viget. They conducted user research with players and delivered insights as a rich, non-linear, and really big (8 feet long) NFL Player Career Journey Map. Join Curt Arledge, Senior User Experience Designer at Viget, for this 30-minute deep dive into the Viget process of research and data visualization that resulted in this unique artifact.
