Creation of a low-fidelity mockup – for brainstorming and discussion.


The provided screenshots represent the early design / low-fidelity mockup of the core features of the web application.    Loosely based on the Kickstarter / Indiegogo crowdfunding platforms. An important difference between this portal an existing crowdfunding platforms is that the types of “backing” that could be provided in the HHS context would include not only financial, but in-kind resources (e.g., staff or subject matter expertise, serving as a user/tester, feedback etc.)
