Hey, thanks for checking this prototype link of the Let's Coffee, an offline networking app for professionals. Here's the brief to provide a background of the product. I'm still working on the design stage of the project, so it is not a proper case study. Sorry about the bugs, ugly mockups and unfinished design.
It started from one of my needs: during my design job hunting stage from Feb, I found that I need to talk to other designers or hiring managers for help with some specific questions. And it is complicated to invite people to catch up with current social media platforms. Also, I need a project which I can go through the whole design journey as a UX/UI designer to update my portfolio too. After the research, user interviews for a few times, I started to design a product which can help people easily reaching out for offline coffee, breakfast, lunch or after-work drink catch up, and share insights and experience with each other.
After the first round of user interview (5 interviewees included junior/senior designers, hiring manager and business owner), I created the personas of the users below:
You can check the lo-fi prototype here, which will need to sign in your InVision account for the first time. If you don't have an InVision account, highly recommend registering a new one. It's free, and there're many great articles on their blog!
Any comments will be appreciated to help me improve the design. You can easily leave your comment with the InVision comment mode.
PS. I finished the wireframe and lo-fi prototype this Monday and then played with visual design to find out the style of the app. Then I couldn't help to go deeper, which is too fast for a project. Should spend more time on the lo-fi prototype testing stage. I attached the concept in the process below, and all comments are welcomed too!
If you would like to know more about the project, I'm happy to have a coffee catch up to walk you through it :) Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
