Problem Statement

Design an app prototype that could give designers their daily dose of inspiration and help them stay ahead of the curve.

The Solution

How I got here?

Focus on User Interviews

I started conducting user interviews to figure out what features designers needed. Some main takeaways that we learned during this period were:

Competitor Analysis

The vital part of this whole process was to evaluate other existing design resource apps and figure out how my app stand out and add value. I look at existing design apps, news apps, tailored content apps, and various other sources to draw inspiration and figure out what was missing.

Scope & Constraints

My scope was mainly limited to coming up with a relevant, creative prototype and addressed the problem with a consistent, clear visual language that spoke to the target audience. The project was created under nine weeks for a class at Parsons School of Design, New York.
