an app designed to bring artists together
In this project I designed the user experience for a hypothetical application built to bring creatives together. Involved user profile creation, information architecture design, and prototyping (sketching, wireframing, and software).
I started the project with sketches of the design, and focused on user flows and how the app would respond to input.
I created and tested a functional prototype with InVision. The clickable InVision prototype can be found here.
I created three user profiles through interviews with potential users focusing on their needs in the artistic community. Key insights were mapped to user flows and requirements for the app.
The project culminated in several final stills of what the app might look like with code. I learned to prioritize user experience over interface design, while incorporating user needs into the information architecture. It was challenging to commit myself to wireframes from the start, rather than finalize the look immediately - but this proved essential to a smooth, cohesive final appearance.
