An ____ Vu —

  1. “Normal science, the activity in which most scientists inevitably spend almost all their time, is predicated on the assumption that the scientific community knows what the world is like”

    ― Thomas S. Kuhn, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

  2. “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

  3. ―George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

6. Skooba

KYO + TYO / 2019
At: AdobeXD

            Meeting people is hard.  Meeting people while not everyone speaks the same language is very hard. Now, try meeting people in a foreign country, while knowing no one, while not speaking the language, and having no idea where to go/what to do. Seems a tad... difficult. And I’ve to experience this problem first hand while studying design + aesthetics in Japan. So I designed this app: Skooba. 

            Key functionality, problem identification, market validation, user pain points, ethos, focus points, physical iterations, branding and roadmap can be found in the final slide deck here: Skooba Overview

            Defined a personal problem. Surveyed the market for existing solutions, found them to be deficient. Used Adobe XD to prototype UI as well as interactions. Put final designs through 2 critique rounds of ~15 peers each time. Iterated on critiques after each round, and created a final slide deck to guide through the process. Will create a full documentation of the design process soon.

            A few iterations on the explore screen, I wanted something to highlight the values I cared about, and wanted to differentiate from Tinder and Bumble:

        Here is the final wireframe:
