Problem Statement: This is an app I created for a client while I was freelancing. He wanted an app which shows all ongoing events in a city on google maps. My client, being a non-tech person, did not know that the data of all these events has to come via some “backend”. After some discussion, we decided that for now a simple app with hardcoded data will do. He needed some time to get more clarity on the product and the budget.
Design process: In this app, we wanted to display city events on a map. We thought that this is better than showing the same data in a list format. When a user looks at the google maps, he/she gets a sense of navigation. We wanted this experience to be a part of our app.
As always, I created a list of users flows and shared it with the client. Since the client didn’t have any idea about app creation, I took the responsibility of creating the UI and logo for the app as well.
Outcome: It turned out to be a very delightful app. Especially because I added some splash and view animations. These animations weren’t part of the user flows, but they added motion and meaning to the app. The user experience seamless. The client was very impressed and happy. He left a good review on my freelancer profile.
