Project Dashboard

Abstract: One of the key pieces of feedback used to shape the redesign of CreateSpace's online title setup process was that authors publishing through CreateSpace did not have a good idea of what to do next, particularly when returning to a project after an extended period.

The early explorations of the previous redesign included a redesign of the old summary page that I dusted off and revised into a multi-phase all-up dashboard to orient users when returning to work on their titles.

Multiple phases that correlate to the traditional publishing process.
Highlighting of the relevant phases to see where you are
Status icons for each page in the process
Summary information about your book
Visual parity with the navigation on each page in the process
