Designing variations of the timeline
The Employee Timeline was designed to give the employees' performance review results context. By displaying the employees' review scores next to their work changes, HR could better understand the employee journey in the company.
The final design of the timeline: an animated demo of the loading behavior.
Here you can see examples of designs of the timeline I tested. The designs were evaluated by how well they supported the timeline's goal to showcase a clearer view of the employee journy in the company, and also how well it displayed different types of content, states of viewing and context, and how engaging and unique the UI design would be in these states.
